Albion PL2 v Reading PL2 match report

Albion’s PL2 side came back from two goals behind to beat Reading in a thrilling encounter at Aggborough Stadium on Monday night.

The visitors opened the scoring when Oliver Pendlebury cushioned a cross into the path of Adam Liddle, and doubled their advantage just before the break through Thierry Nevers.

But the Baggies would fight back in the second period. Rayhaan Tulloch’s side-footed strike provided the platform for an impressive comeback, with Chris Willock chopping into the box and curling an effort into the top corner to level the scores.

Willock would then provide the lofted through ball for Tulloch to fire in his second as Albion took the lead for the first time. 

With less than ten minutes to play, the visitors had the chance to equalise from the penalty spot after Willock was adjudged to have tripped Ryan Crooks. Yet Brad House made an impressive low save from the spot to keep out Liddle and mantain the advantage for the Baggies.

With just minutes to play, Willock secured the points for Albion by cutting inside once more and lashing a left-footed strike past Coniah Boyce-Clark.

ALBION: House; White, Martinez, Shotton, Harmon; Azaz, Solanke; Clayton-Phillips, Tulloch, Willock; Soule.

Substitutes: Cann, Dyce, Brown, Wilding, Morton.
