Albion PL2 v Fulham PL2 match report

16th December

Albion Under-23s recorded their seventh Premier League 2 Division Two win of the season, beating Fulham 3-1 at Aggborough Stadium on Monday night.

The Baggies bounced back from a 3-1 defeat against Manchester United by dispatching of the Cottagers to make it five wins out of their last seven league matches.

Albion started the brighter of the two teams; Stanley Asomugha went close but was denied from close-range in the opening moments.

However, the Baggies forward netted the first goal of the game before the ten-minute mark when he latched onto a lovely Jack Fitzwater pass and squeezed his effort in from a tight angle.

The Baggies striker would then turn provider for Albion’s second. Aksum White did well on the wing and found Asomugha. He played a delightful back heel into the path of Rayhaan Tulloch, who fired a low strike into the corner of the goal.

In the second period both sides had chances, but Albion remained in control and reaffirmed their authority when Callum Morton was felled in the box and smashed home the resulting spot-kick.

Deep into stoppage time the Baggies were denied a clean sheet as Fabio Carvalho curled in from the edge of the box, although it made little difference to the final outcome.

ALBION: Griffiths; White, O’Shea, Fitzwater, Dyce (Solanke 80); Harper, Brunt; Tulloch, Richards (Clayton-Phillips 48), Willock; Asomugha (Morton 70).

Substitutes: Emery, Azaz.
