Much-changed line-up defeated

Ahead of Tuesday’s important FA Youth Cup tie with Stevenage a much-changed Under-18s went down 6-2 at Peterborough in the Youth Alliance League Cuo.

With the cup tie looming, boss Paul Driver used the game to take a look at a triallist and a number of Under-16s players whilst also giving game-time to players returning from injury.
Peterborough raced into a two-goal lead in the first quarter-of-an-hour but then Jemale McKenzie-Lowe pulled one back with a close range header.  Two further goals from the visitors opened up a 4-1 lead for Posh at half-time.
A well-worked goal, started and finished by Zane Banton, gave the Hatters youngsters hope, but a strong Peterborough outfit added two goals in the last quarter of the game to run out comfortable winners.
Driver told "We made too many silly mistakes on the ball and they punished us every time unfortunately.  

“However, we got minutes into the legs of a couple of lads coming back from injury and the Under-16 lads will only gain from the experience at this level."

Town: Carpenter, Carrey (sub Trottman 50), Burtenshaw, Stephens (sub Jibodu 70), Chabata, Rees, Banton, Galliford, Davis, McKenzie-Lowe (sub Maguraushe 70), Ngwala.
