Under-21s prepare for Derby test

21 September 2015

Shan calls on side to take 'more risks'

JAMES Shan will be looking for more creativity from his unbeaten Under-21 side when they take on Derby County at Tamworth tonight (ko 7pm).

The Baggies have yet to lose this season, having claimed three wins and a draw in their opening fixtures of the campaign.

Tonight they take on a Rams side who Shan feels were unfortunate to lose against Arsenal in their most recent fixture.

The Under-21s boss has been pleased with the way his side has defended, but wants more spark in the final third.

"We go into this game on the back of two clean sheets so we've praised the lads for that," said Shan.

"But against Wolves (0-0) we lacked that bit of creativity so we've been working on that during the week to try to give the lads that bit more confidence in the final third.

"We want the lads to take a few more risks and tonight will be a good test for us."
