- Under-21s defeated 4-1 by Liverpool
- Ryan Meadows scored consolation goal for Owls
- 'Down to decision making at this level' says Lee Bullen
Owls coach Lee Bullen was left to rue costly defensive mistakes as the Under-21s were defeated 4-1 by Liverpool on Monday.
The Premier League outfit ran out comfortable winners with goals from Jack Dunn (2), Jerome Sinclair and Kevin Stewart sealing the win at Kirkby Academy.
Midfielder Ryan Meadows scored a consolation goal for the visitors.
Bullen said: “Liverpool deserved to win. They were better than us, which you probably would expect. The four goals we conceded were very sloppy and avoidable. One or two of our lads played below their standards and we got punished for individual mistakes.”
“It was a great experience for myself and the team. Hopefully the guys will have learned a lot from the experience. It was a fantastic opportunity to go over and play against a top team.
“It has been a fantastic eye opener for the guys. It comes down to decision making at this level.
“We tried to play short passes and got picked off two or three times rather than mixing things up and playing further forward.”
