From The Gaffer

Under 23s Manager, Michael Allsebrook spoke ahead of the game, “The players represented the football club so well on Saturday. We are very proud of what they have done over the season, and we left Manchester with immense pride. It’s about taking that pride and what we have learnt from that game and taking it into Sunday’s game and next season.”

“On reflection, I thought we defended as a unit well but in possession we weren’t at our best. A lot of that is down to composure but we’ll learn from it. It’s nice to not end the season on the disappointment from Saturday. It’s a chance to make things right at Stoke. We’ve played away from home for a majority of the season.”
