Blackburn (R) – Fulham (R) 3,4 3,3 1,95 (bwin)
Blackburn have poor reserves. Their youth are playing for 4 days youth finale with Chelsea so they probably will not have full squad. Fulham have much better reserves, first team didnt played this weekend, i belived they will put some player to play..
Rovers Reserves go in search of back-to-back wins when they take on Fulham at Brockhall this Monday afternoon.
Gary Bowyer’s young side put in their best display of the season last time out to defeat West Bromwich Albion on their own patch courtesy of goals from Nick Blackman andOsayamen Osawe.
That side featured many of the successful FA Youth Cup squad, but with those players having the first leg of their final away against Chelsea this coming Friday, Gary Bowyer has had to shuffle his pack and call upon the likes of Amine Linganzi, Bruno Ribeiro and Herold Goulon. Jackson Ramm returns after a lengthy absence due to an ankle injury whilst Tim Payne makes his first start for the Reserves.
ROVERS: Usai, Ramm, Anderson, Linganzi, O’Connor, Pearson, Ribeiro, Goulon, Blackman (c), Payne, Maclaren, O’Sullivan, Urwin, Wylie, O’Connell, Fernandez.
Fulham’s in-form Development Squad are back in action this afternoon when they take on Blackburn Rovers at their Senior Training Centre (KO 2pm).
Ray Lewington’s side have won four matches in a row and have hit 15 goals in the process. Their last two league matches were 5-1 and 5-0 victories over Norwich City and Newcastle United respectively, whilst they also enjoyed a 3-2 win against West Ham in a friendly outing.
Rovers’ Reserve side have struggled for form this season and currently sit bottom of the Barclays Premier Reserve League North table with just 15 points and two league wins all season. They are also the only side in either group to fail to register a home win so far this campaign.
They go into today’s game on the back of a win though after doing Fulham a favour by defeating West Brom by two goals to nil. Albion are only a point ahead of the Whites in the Southern League and so if they avoid defeat this afternoon, Ray Lewington’s charges will climb to third.
They’ll be facing a young Blackburn side which features a considerable amount of players from their successful Academy team who knocked Fulham’s conquerors Burnley out of the FA Youth Cup in their semi-final tie. How many of those youngsters play this afternoon remains to be seen though as it’s the first leg of their Youth Cup Final versus Chelsea this Friday.
