Defence the key in FAYC - Cameron

Posted on 17 March 2015  - 16:10

Cameron Carter-Vickers feels another strong defensive display holds the key ahead of our FA Youth Cup semi-final, second leg against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.


We travel to West London with a 2-0 lead from the first leg at the Lane on March 3 thanks to goals from Josh Onomah and Kazaiah Sterling.

Our defensive unit - led by Cameron - was outstanding that night to keep free-scoring Chelsea at bay and he knows the team will need a repeat performance to make it through to the final.

"As a defensive unit we played really well at home and if we can take that to Stamford Bridge then we’ll have a really good chance of getting to the final," said Cameron.

"That’s going to be key for us. Chelsea have an array of attacking talent and they score plenty of goals so if we can stay strong defensively, like we did in the first leg, then we’ve always got the ability to score a goal ourselves."

The teams are certainly familiar with each other - this will be the fourth time we've met in the last six weeks - and Cameron is aware the Blues will be stung from that first leg result.

"We know Chelsea will be right at us from the start and we have to be ready for that," he added.

"It would be special to get to the final. That’s what we’re all aiming for."
