Strong away peformance by City U.23's, Josh Knight scores the winner

DATE: 18.08.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

After a start of missed oppertunities v. Man Utd, coming close to score, it must have been great for Steve Beaglehole to see his team perform away in this manner.

TCF does not have any knowledge of how strong the Everton side might have been, but to see City defeat another Premier League rival in a U.23 game is always great, it shows carachter and should not take away anything.

As Craig Shakespeare said in the press conferance earlier today, Papa Mendy, would be playing this match. He came of after the first half, and hopefully it was a match in which he could feel a bit of what it was like to play a game again.

Elliott Moore was missing. The U.23 captain, has put pen to paper on a new two year deal. The home grown Leicester player, born in Coalville will be absent until January, playing for City's "sisters" OH Leuven.

In his absence, another skillfull young centre back will get more noticed. Josh Knight took his chance and scored the winner for City after 38 minutes, with Ndukwu making the assist.

Everton dominated the game, having 59 % posession, but City managed to keep the goal defended and goalkeeper Daniel Iversen had another good game. He is behind Hamer, Jukopovic and Schmeichel, but the Danish Youth international is certainly progressing.

Darnel Johnson, the England U.19 international, started at the right in defence, with Rumanian Alexandru Pascanu covering to the left. Connor Wood and Josh Knight peared a good partnership in the middle.

New signing George Thomas was involved and played all 90 minutes. Sam Hughes, another summer signing, from Chester, has not yet played in the team and might be injured.

City will be out travelling in the next round as well, playing Man City on the 25th of August, but this must be a great result for a team that over the years has seen many young talents developing, and hopefully new faces will be regular first teamers in the years to come.

Strangely the games takes place on a Friday night, then it will be difficult to field any of these players on a Saturday, that makes the selection a bit taking care of itself, since so few subs from the first team squad can be involved.

Would like to see more players involved in games, becuase that is what makes you a better player, not running around on the training ground with the word "match fit" being a bit of a clichè, not being able to play either in the first team or in the U.23's.
