Baggies turn attention to Hawthorns cup date with Walsall
ALBION suffered a late 1-0 derby defeat by Villa in the Barclays U18 Premier League at the club’s training ground on Saturday.
The Baggies remain one point clear of bottom-placed Arsenal in the South Group of the Premier League.
Albion host Walsall in the FA Youth Cup third round at The Hawthorns tomorrow night (Tuesday, ko 7pm).
And professional development coach James Shan is hoping his side can bounce back in the cup.
"It was a really poor day at the office," said Shan.
"Villa deserved their win but it was frustrating that they scored with a minute to go.
"We're hoping for a response tomorrow night in the cup."
Admission to the Hawthorns encounter is priced at £5 adults and £3 concessions.
ALBION: Palmer; Sweeney, C Jones, Howkins, Smart (Donnellan 60); Cleet, Ward, S Nabi; Wright (Oldnall 60), Wedderburn (Hallahan 70), Barrow. Subs not used: Ross, Gannon.
