Connor's challenge

Posted on 7 May 2015  - 06:00

Connor Ogilvie is determined to help our Under-21s improve their defensive form.


The left-back was on duty once again as we played out an entertaining 3-3 draw at Manchester City in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League on Monday afternoon.

A brace from Nathan Oduwa saw us go in at half-time two goals to the good, but a quickfire double from the hosts levelled things up. Harry Winks’ subsequent strike was then cancelled out – leaving the lads with a share of the spoils and without a win in seven attempts.

That stretch has included credible draws with Manchester United, Chelsea and City, but defender Connor acknowledged there’s work to be done after the six-goal thriller at the City Football Academy.

“I thought we had the chances to take the three points on Monday but there were a few mistakes,” he admitted. “I thought we grafted well, but City’s players must have had something said to them at half-time for them to come out after the break and score twice in quick succession like that.

“I thought we made it difficult for them, but there’s definitely room for improvement after conceding three goals.

“Luke McGee in goal made some top saves, but maybe we’ve got to be more alert inside the box in order to improve.”

The Under-21s host Fulham at White Hart Lane on Friday night, kick-off 7pm.
