Jimmy Neighbour reflected on only his youngsters' second defeat of the season by admitting: "We shouldn't have lost."

One mistake cost the in-form boys a share of the spoils with the home side capitalising on the half-hour.

"We actually played quite well," said boss Jimmy. "To be honest neither team looked like scoring.

"It was a shame because it was a goal that we shouldn't have let in, a goalkeeping error, but I can't moan because the team did reasonably well and we shouldn't have lost.

"We have to keep our concentration more and to give away goals like that is very disappointing.

"We looked very good at the back, the defence was sound but we didn't create as much, so that's something to work on."

Spurs U17s: Eyre, Perry, McKie (Watson, 85), Barnett, Foster, Tyrie, Noto (Price, 75), Black, Malcolm, Yeates, Wettner. Unused subs: Dobson, Hicks.
