Villa Reserves 3-1 Spurs Stiffs

Villa Reserves 3-1 Spurs Stiffs

Just returned from Bescot.

There weren't many chances at all in the first half, Salifou had 2 shots tipped over the bar in the first 15 mins while Tomas Pekhart had the ball in the net for Spurs but was clearly offside.

Spurs took the lead just after half time with a penalty but then they crumbled completely.

Our midfield took control and Mikaelsson got 2 and then Harewood scored a penalty.

Villa could have had so many more with chances from Bellon and Harewood again. Salifou was fantastic, that good he got a standing ovation from the supporters even at a reserve game.

Harewood was very average, some good touches, some bad ones.

Curtis Davies was a rock at the back, won everything.

Sorenson made a good save late on but never really had to do much apart from that in the game.

Osbourne played really well in midfield but the 3 that really stood out were Salifou, Nathan Delfounseso and Harry Forrester. Delfounseso and Forrester ripped the Spurs full backs apart, both look really good prospects for the future.

Really good performance by the Villa reserves tonight and they still lie top of the table on 17 points.

Villa: Sorensen, Lund, O'Halloran, Herd, Clark, Davies, Salifou, Osbourne, Harewood, Delfouneso, Mikaelsson. Subs: Y.Bellon, Bevan, D.Bellon (Salifou 83), Weimann (Deldouneso 87), Forrester (Clark 12).

would be great if salifou works out, certainly an impressive start in his two reserve games. Could be the buy of the season!

Salifou looked impressive. Shows from the standing ovation he got, even from MON in the box behind me. Got stuck into the challenges all night.

If Harewood played tonight why was he not on the bench on Saturday or is he that crap he cannot even get on our bench ? Have I just answered my own question

Harewood looked very average. Was awful at some things and good at others. Just needs to find that level of consistency. Mikaelsson was on his hat trick and is the pen taker for reserves and Harewood (the skipper) took the penalty off him so he could take it himself. Bit selfish really.

Great to hear Salifou looks like a player, and also good to see the really young kids given a chance at reserve level.

Delfounseso really looks a top player for the future. His skills and technique is phenomenal for 16 year old lad.
