Chesterfield U18 2 Rovers U18 1

2 October 2017

Paul Stancliffe felt like he was telling the same old story as Rovers’ U18 side were undone by conceding two early goals against Chesterfield.

James Morris’ goal proved in vain as two early strikes from the young Spireites sealed the win at St George’s Park in Sheffield.

Stancliffe said: “I felt like we could’ve at least got a point out of it, there were a lot of positives in the second half but I am saying the same things week in, week out.

“We have spells in the game and we don’t concentrate well enough and we concede in those spells - other teams probably do the same, but they don’t concede. We’ve got to toughen up because it’s the same story every week.”

Marshall Willock headed in from an early corner, and just two minutes later a cross was put into Rovers’ box and it found Robbie Foster at an open left post who was on stand-by to just tap it in from close range.

After this point, though, Rovers took control of the game and really dominated.

They managed to pull a goal back through James Morris after Rilwan Olasun made a good run into the box - after fantastic build-up play from Brandon Horton – then played the ball in the box to find Morris who had space to turn, shoot and then score.
