ACADEMY HIGHLIGHTS: HARTLEPOOL UNITED 0-2 BURTON ALBION

24 October 2017

GOALS from Kyle Clamp and James Harrison helped the Burton Albion under 18s return to winning ways with a 2-0 win over Hartlepool United.

Clamp put the Brewers ahead in the first half, when he turned the ball in from close-range. Harrison secured the win in the second half, beating the Hartlepool goalkeeper with an accurate finish. 

Professional Development Phase Lead Coach Sam Rose it was pleasing to see the team return to form, especially when faced with a different challenge to what they have encountered so far this season. 

He said: "The game was end to end and both teams had chances to score but we defended the box really well.

"The game didn't particularly flow and was quite scrappy but we worked hard and did the basics of defending. It was a different game to in recent weeks as we weren't able to have as much of the ball but we played some good football in patches and could have scored more than the two goals.

"The group are pleased to get back to winning ways and have shown today that they can win a different kind of game."
