Match Previews

Young Baggies face Wolves in 2019 opener

6 January 2019

ALBION Under-23s begin 2019 with a local derby as they host Wolverhampton Wanderers at Aggborough on Monday evening (ko 7pm).

Jamie Smith’s side ended the last calendar year with four points from two December games and have already surpassed last season’s points total following an encouraging first half of the campaign. 

Wolves, meanwhile, are sat 3rd in the Premier League 2 Division Two table and had put a seven-match unbeaten run together before the festive break.

Three points for either side could have big implications with the young Baggies looking to close the gap on the top six and Wanderers hoping to leapfrog the leading pack.

Revenge is on the cards for Albion after being defeated in the reverse fixture last August, and tickets for the clash are available on the gate for just £5 adults and £1 concessions or entry is free if you're a season-ticket holder.

7 January 2019

ALBION Under-23s were defeated 4-2 by Wolves in an eventful Premier League 2 Division Two clash at Aggborough.

Jamie Smith’s side started brightly and had a goal disallowed inside five minutes, Nick Clayton-Phillips judged to be offside after slotting home the rebound from Rayhaan Tulloch’s saved effort. 

Wolves’ Max Kilman and Niall Ennis then stunned the young Baggies as they struck twice in seven minutes to put the away side in a commanding position at half-time.

After the break Kyle Edwards pulled Albion back in the game as he rifled a powerful effort into the roof of the net just before the hour mark.

Wanderers put a halt to mounting Baggies pressure on 69 minutes, though, as Pedro Goncalves’ penalty snuck over the line despite an initial Alex Palmer save.

Edwards netted a superb curler to pull the home side within a goal once more as the game edged towards the final whistle, but shortly after Alex Bradley received a second yellow card Wolves’ Oscar Buur put the result beyond doubt with just two minutes left on the clock.

ALBION: Palmer, Ferguson, Howkins (Azaz 45), Harmon; Meredith, Bradley, Wilding, Rogers; Clayton-Phillips, Edwards, Tulloch.

Substitutes: House, Gardner-Hickman, Brown, Soule.
