Match Previews

Shan on PL Cup derby

21 January 2018

JAMES Shan is looking forward to Albion’s first under-23 fixture of the year when they take on Aston Villa in the Premier League Cup on Monday evening.

The Baggies have had their last two fixtures, against Wolves and Brighton, postponed - meaning they haven’t played since before Christmas. 

“It’s been a really frustrating couple of weeks for us,” said Shan.

“We’ve had a number of youngsters back with us who were out on loan during the first half of the season, and they’ve missed out on opportunities to drum up some interest in themselves for the remainder of the campaign.

“But it looks like they’re going to get some game time now to show what they can do, and with it being a derby that adds something special to the match.

Albion’s under-23s are without any points from their first two PL Cup Group E fixtures, but they’ve still got four games left to try and get through to the next round.

“We’ll certainly be looking to get a positive result because this is a competition we can still advance in.”

The game is being played at Walsall’s Banks's Stadium (ko 7pm).

Match Reports

Albion U23s 0 Aston Villa U23s 3

22 January 2018

ALBION's under-23s were defeated 3-0 by Aston Villa in the Premier League Cup at the Banks's Stadium.

Morgan Rogers had an attempt blocked for The Baggies on 12 minutes, but it was Villa who took the lead on the 20 minute mark through Andre Green's effort.

Oliver Burke then went close two minutes later for Albion when his low shot couldn't quite find the bottom corner.

Villa went into half time two goals ahead, though, after Callum O'Hare sent Boaz Myhill the wrong way from the penalty spot.

After the break the Baggies almost got on the scoresheet when Burke shot wide and Rekeem Harper couldn't keep his volley down, but Green got the away side's third on 71 minutes to ensure they went home with all three points.

ALBION: Myhill, Nyom (Jameson 45), Howkins, Fitzwater, Melbourne; Rogers (McCourt 80), Donnellan, Harper, Leko; Burke, Morton.

Substitutes: Palmer, Brown, Pierce.
