Spurs U19 0-0 Wolves

Pat Holland found some plusses after his young side's opening day stalemate against Wolves.

"Wolves were a strong side, very tall side and it wasn't a classic," reflected Pat.

"But there were some plusses. As a side we worked hard and it was an Under-18 side, a young team to put out at that level.

"Over the 90 minutes we created the better chances. We got around the back of them a few times, Liam Francis (pictured) caused them problems and balls went into the box but there were all half-chances really.

"They then went closest with about five minutes to go when the ball struck the inside of the post and came out.

"They would have been a bit fortunate to have won it though and overall, the result was a fair reflection. I couldn't criticise the lads though, they all worked hard."

Spurs: Eyre, Ifil, Francis, Watson, Hodges, Dobson, Hicks, Jenkins, Malcolm, O'Hara, Price (Barnett, 80), Lee. Unused sub: McKie.
