Milos ends three-year wait in style!

Posted on 31 October 2015  - 08:37

Almost three years to the day since he was last on the scoresheet in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League, Milos Veljkovic was thrilled to be able to contribute to our Under-21s’ excellent 3-1 win over Chelsea at both ends of the pitch.

Solid at the back along with Cameron Carter-Vickers on Friday evening, the defender popped up at the other end a few minutes into the second half to slide home at the back post following Anton Walkes’ corner for his first goal since a 4-2 win over Manchester United on October 27, 2012.

That put us 2-0 up against the Blues, with Shayon Harrison responsible for our other two goals in what was a fine display at the home of Aldershot Town.

Tammy Abraham did manage to pull one back for Chelsea during a scrappy last few minutes as the hosts set about trying to reduce the deficit but we’d already done enough to secure victory, leaving Milos delighted with his night’s work.

“As a defender it’s not always my job to score but I haven’t hit the target for a while now so I’m very happy!” he beamed.

“Every corner that I went up for I stayed at the back post and I was free all the time, so I tried to tell the taker to put it on the back post and luckily it came to me, so that was great.

“We’re now unbeaten in four games and I think it was a good performance. At the end we should have maybe stayed solid and avoided conceding, but we defended well as a team in the main.

“Overall it was a very good performance from us.”
