YOUTH: United 0 - 1 Rotherham

United in cup action

13 September 2019

The first of United's Youth Alliance Cup group fixtures was a home game against Rotherham United on Friday afternoon.

And the young Blues played some good football in what was a very tight encounter, with a set-piece the difference between the sides on the day.

Youth boss Eric KInder said: "I can't criticise the lads at all for this performance.

"It was a very good game and it was just a shame that we didn't take one or two of the good chances we created. We need to improve our final pass but other than that we played well.

"We kept going, and we were really unfortunate when what we thought was a good goal from Taylor Charters was disallowed for a foul. There was only one person at Creighton who thought that something was wrong, and unluckily for us it was the only person on the pitch that mattered.

"Their goal came when we didn't clear a corner properly but, other than that, it was a very even game between two good sides."

"This competition is run on a group basis, and we know that two wins and a draw from our remaining games will see us progress," he continued. "Like I say, I can't criticise the lads too much and we know that if they continue to play in this way they'll be doing alright."

More details to follow.
