Comments...
Fantastic game, great spectacle and it took Ben Foster to be the difference really in the end. Non of the lads should be too disappointed, they have been remarkable this season again and can rightly hold their heads high despite this unfortunate loss.

Albrighton, Delfouneso and Collins will obviously feel they could've done more with their penalties, but it wasn't to be.

We still finish the season as Champions in the league for the 3rd consecutive season in a row, and that as an achievement (especially as the only first teamers who ever get a chance in the second string are those recovering from injury and even then it's not often) is phenomenal. Unlike a lot of the opposition they have faced this season they truly are a second team bolstered by Academy lads.

Makes what they have achieved, only losing once in the league all season, all the more sweeter.

Some of them may not be old enough....but the champagne should still be flowing tonight!
