Shan wants to build momentum

JAMES Shan wants his team to pick up where they left off when they take on Fulham in a Premier League 2 Division Two game on Monday afternoon.

Albion’s under-23s put on an encouraging showing to beat Ipswich 2-1 in the PL Cup last time out thanks to first half goals from Alex Bradley and Rekeem Harper. 

And Shan has challenged his side to build on that win, though knows they won't have it easy against a Fulham side who currently sit fifth in the table and are unbeaten in nine league matches.

“It was a good performance on Thursday and now we need to gain momentum by going on and winning some games,” he said.

“In my opinion Fulham are the best team in our division so it will be a tough test for us.

“It’s also the last opportunity for some of our senior development players to impress and secure themselves a loan for the remainder of the season.”

The fixture against the Cottagers will be played behind closed doors at the Palm Training Ground.
