Bolton U21 0 Albion U21 1

David Oldfield's side collect first away points of the term

ALBION secured a second consecutive 1-0 victory in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League at Bolton this evening – thanks to a solitary Alex Jones strike. 

The Baggies followed up last Monday’s 1-0 triumph over Arsenal at The Hawthorns with a solid performance at the Reebok Stadium. 

David Oldfield’s young Albion outfit dominated much of the game but left it until the 70th minute to seal their first points on the road this season.

Development Coach David Oldfield said: “It was a good team performance and I’m pleased by the way the side played. 

“We had plenty of possession but we need to be more clinical in front of goal.

“We didn’t get too carried away when things weren’t going our way earlier in the season but of course it is important we pick up wins and to follow up last week’s win over Arsenal is pleasing.” 

ALBION: Lewis; O’Neil, D Daniels, Gayle, Atkinson; Thorne, Mantom; I Brown, A Nabi, O’Sullivan; A Jones. Subs not used: Palmer (gk); Pace, Smart, C Jones, Ambalu.
