Match Previews

Already-qualified young Baggies travel to Hull

20 February 2020

Albion Under-23s travel to Hull City on Friday evening (ko 7pm) with progress from Premier League Cup Group C already secured.

The young Baggies have won four and lost just one of their five fixtures so far in the competition, but their opponents are fighting it out with Newcastle for the final spot in the top two.

Albion won the reverse clash 2-1 at Keys Park last month thanks to goals from Jamie Soule, who has since gone out on loan to Barrow, and Finn Azaz.

That triumph for the Baggies was Hull’s only defeat out of their last seven matches. The Tigers will need to claim all three points at East Riding County FA’s stadium to keep their hopes of a place in the knockout rounds alive.

Keep an eye out on Albion’s social media channels and here at wba.co.uk to see how the game unfolds.

Hull PL2 2 Albion PL2 0

21 February 2020

Albion’s already-qualified youngsters fell to defeat on the road in their final Premier League Cup Group C game against Hull City.

The Baggies, who had already secured their spot as group winners, were undone by two first-half goals by Stephen Kingsley and Billy Chadwick.

An impressive Kingsley strike handed the hosts the advantage, but Cheikh Diaby twice came close to an equaliser, firstly with a poked effort which was deflected wide and then with a close-range strike which he blazed over after a Yusuff Ojebode’s cross.

But Chadwick netted from inside the box into the bottom corner to add to Hull’s advantage.

Ethan Ingram hit a strike from range which went well wide, while Finley Thorndike was denied by great reactions from Harvey Cartwright in the Tigers’ net.

Then Thorndike skipped past two challenges inside the box but could only find the side-netting, as the hosts held on for victory.

ALBION: Cann; Ingram, Sharpe  (Martinez 61), Shotton, Ashworth; Brown, Chambers (White 68); Ojebode, Thorndike (Taylor 77), Dyce; Diaby.

Substitutes: Wilding.
