Albion U21 triumph over Trotters

Shaun Donnellan, Chike Kandi and Adil Nabi on target

ALBION registered an impressive 3-1 victory away at Bolton last night in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League.

Shaun Donnellan handed the Baggies the lead at the County Ground, Leyland, sweeping home Kemar Roofe’s 25th-minute corner.

Albion went straight on the offensive for a second, Liam O’Neil hitting the crossbar from distance, and their reward duly came six minutes after half-time courtesy of Chike Kandi’s well-taken finish.

The Trotters responded immediately through Ryan Sellers but James Shan’s side held strong.

And, with Rees Wedderburn having already struck a post, Adil Nabi added a precious third in the 85th minute.

The result leaves Albion in fourth place in National Division 2, with six points from their opening three matches of the campaign.

Albion: Rose, Smart, Garmston, Pace (Ward 65'), Donnellan, Howkins, Leko (Wedderburn 60'), O'Neil, Kandi (S Nabi 77'), A Nabi, Roofe.
Unused subs: Palmer, Barrow.
