Disappointing defeat for youngsters at Middlesbrough

Goal in each half seals victory for hosts

ALBION’s Under-18 side fell to a 2-0 defeat at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Boro went ahead midway through the first half following a swift counter-attacking move.

And the hosts then doubled their lead after the restart in fortuitous circumstances when the referee waved away Baggies appeals for a free-kick, with the resulting breakaway leading to a second goal.

The youngsters will be looking to put things right when they face Everton next Saturday.

ALBION: Keranovic, Meredith, Artymatas, Piggott, Morrison, Bradley, Dool, Chambers (Holsgrove 63), Nabi, Pierce, Forss (Walker 81).

Unused subs: Pryzbek, McCourt, Hall.
