Birmingham been much the better side in the 2nd half. Our players look tired. Owura looks outstanding. Towler looks really good too. 

With Britton, seen it in other 23s games, he hasn't got much of an engine on him. Looked very tired end of second half and all of this 2nd half.

Janneh not great technically, though very quick and working very hard. Can see why he's played wing for us and is playing wing today as he isn't going to win much in the air or link play very well when the ball is played into feet or chest. 

Birmingham look like they have some good players themselves. Tough game this is.

Zac Smith now on for Janneh

Birmingham look to have some players nearer the top end of U23, compared to us. There are a few missing of course, Scott, Pearson, Bell for example.

At least he comes alive in the box, but in general play it looks like he's already run a half marathon before the game started.

That Andrews is a right handful. Wood losing that battle which made all the difference 2nd half in how the game went.

Wood only 17 to be fair and Andrews 19, so older and 6 foot 3. Tough for Wood

Yeah he's going to have to work very hard on his fitness. Wins a lot in the air and is one hell of a finisher. Would have been great to have Conway today. Need his energy up top

thought our boys were brilliant, fought to the bitter end and gave everything, Burm decent, but we easily matched them and could have won it late on.

far more fight seen by the U23's then the pack of losers who have represented us in the full team this season.

Especially considering we had our four best players missing and Brum picked their players who are in their first team squad

I am very disappointed. We are undoubtedly a good side but spurned so many chances and kept gifting them the ball in the air. 

Heroic failure will not be tolerated by the first team coach moving forward!

Well. A game that swung multiple ways with us on top for spells and then them on top for spells. Very evenly matched. 
 

Our MOTM definitely Towler. Very solid display. 
Closely followed by Pring. Defended solidly and was a constant threat going forward too. 
Edwards is lively but needs to learn when to bring other players in. 
Benarous looked skilful in his brief appearance. 
I thought we really struggled in central midfield. Owers & Morton didn’t ever impose themselves on the game, and neither did Smith when he came on for Owers. 
Britton didn’t get much service to work off, so it was hard to judge his performance, but he put himself about when he had to. 
 

Their big man up front, Josh Andrews, was a right handful. 
 

Overall a decent watch and we’ve got some decent players in there. Probably only Pring from all of them would be in my first team squad next season though. 
Midfield very weak. Glad we have Scott coming through there, as none of the 3 that played in there today looked likely to make the first team.

Bit unlucky to lose that. Showed great character 2nd half and in extra time. Some bad final balls at times but also a lot of bad luck. Inches in it at times like Bentley said. On another day we get that 2nd goal. 

Towler and Owura impressed me most.

The Brum sub at half-time was naughty, can’t believe Jutkiewicz was allowed to play.  What a unit! 🤣🤣🤣

I think that was what completely changed the game. Though we did look the better side final moments of the 90 and most of extra time. Wood couldn't cope with Andrews. Huge for a 19 year old. To be fair he's 2 years older than Wood and much taller and stronger. 

Britton for us wasn't really as much of a problem for their defence. He won a fair amount, but he won less the longer the game went on.
