Cameron Carter-Vickers believes the low our Under-21s experienced against Reading has proved the turning point of the campaign.

The young defender captained the team that night in what was a painful 4-1loss at Stevenage’s Lamex Stadium.

But the team has bounced back in style.

First up, a 7-4 victory against Leicester, then an impressive 3-2 win against Norwich at Carrow Road and a 1-1 last time out against Liverpool.

Chelsea are next in the Barclays U21 Premier League at Aldershot FC tonight (Friday, October 30, 7.05pm).

“The defeat and performance against Reading was a real low and a tipping point for us,” said Cameron. “We’ve picked ourselves up well, worked hard in training and it’s going well for us at the moment.

“We have to continue to work hard and hopefully the performances and results will continue, starting against Chelsea, which is always a big game for us.”

Cameron proudly signed a new contract at the club this week running until 2018.

Still just 17, the USA international - representing his country at Under-23 level - thoroughly deserves the new deal as he strives to breakthrough into the first team squad.

He has trained regularly with the first team this season and added: “They are always welcoming, friendly and always there for advice but even training with them, you pick up things up every day.”
