U23 PREVIEW: ALBION WELCOME SPURS IN THE PL2

3 February 2019

Paul Hazlewood
Alex Cochrane in action for Albion's under-23s this season.

Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-23s host Tottenham Hotspur at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre this afternoon, kick-off 2pm.

The fixture, which was moved forward from Monday evening to Sunday afternoon, will see Simon Rusk’s team come up against the north London club for the second time this season, following the 1-1 draw between the sides back in August.

The Seagulls currently sit just four points off top spot in the Premier League 2 Division 1, and six points ahead of today’s visitors, who have taken 18 points from 15 matches and occupy ninth position in the league table.

Albion are unbeaten in their previous three league fixtures, a run which includes a 4-2 victory over West Ham United towards the end of 2018 and consecutive draws against Arsenal and Liverpool.

Spurs boast a run of five unbeaten matches, but four of those games have been draws, either side of an impressive 2-1 victory at Manchester City midway through December.



Viktor Gyokeres opened the scoring in the reverse fixture at the Lamex Stadium earlier this season, but Shayon Harrison replied for the home side after the break to earn a share of the spoils.

Despite a positive display against Bayern Munich on Wednesday, Rusk’s team exited the Premier League International Cup after a 2-0 defeat and will be looking to provide a reaction on the south coast this afternoon.

Albion supporters can follow a live text blog from today’s game on the Match Centre, with a report and gallery to be uploaded to the website after the full-time whistle.

U23 REPORT: ALBION 2 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 0

3 February 2019

Bojan Radulovic celebrates his second goal against Tottenham Hotspur.
  • Albion seal 2-0 victory over Spurs
  • Bojan Radulovic bags a brace for the Seagulls
  • Simon Rusk’s team move into second position
  • Albion visit Manchester City next in the league

Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-23s climbed to second in the Premier League 2 Division 1 after a convincing 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre.

It was a game of few clear-cut chances on the south coast, but goals either side of half-time from the returning Bojan Radulovic sealed all three points for Simon Rusk’s hard-working side.

Rusk made three changes to the team that started against Bayern Munich in midweek, with Hugo Keto, Jack Spong and Radulovic coming in for Robert Sanchez, Ryan Longman and Viktor Gyokeres.

Albion made a positive start to the contest, with Haydon Roberts racing to the byline and delivering a dangerous low cross after just six minutes, but Japhet Tanganga made an important clearance for the visitors.

George Marsh then fired Tottenham’s first effort at goal from the edge of the penalty area, but it was a comfortable stop for Keto, who had little to do inside the opening quarter of an hour.



Rusk’s team continued to apply pressure on their opponents and broke the deadlock on 20 minutes, as Radulovic applied a simple finish to a loose ball inside the box after a goalmouth scramble.

Troy Parrott had an opportunity to level the game when he took advantage of a defensive error to race through on goal, but Keto sprinted off his line to smother the forward’s shot.

The second half took a while to spring into life, with Leo Ostigard throwing himself in the way of Tashan Oakley-Boothe’s powerful strike, just four minutes prior to Radulovic’s second of the afternoon.

Albion broke forward at speed and the visitors found themselves outnumbered by blue-and-white shirts, as Peter Gwargis and Danny Cashman combined to find Radulovic, who slotted home with a composed finish.



Ostigard kept Albion’s two-goal lead intact with another superb block from Rayan Clarke’s fierce drive, before Rusk freshened things up with the introduction of both Longman and Soufyan Ahannach.

Longman had a great chance to extend Albion’s lead in the closing stages, after cutting inside of his marker, but the winger’s curling effort dropped just wide of the target from inside the area.

Albion comfortably saw out the game, with Keto remaining untested for large periods, and Rusk’s side extended their unbeaten league run to four matches with another impressive victory.

ALBION: Keto; A.Davies, Ostigard, O’Hora, Cochrane; Sanders, Spong, Roberts; Gwargis (Ahannach 62), Radulovic (Longman 73), Cashman.

Subs not used: Collings (GK), Moore, Tomlinson.
