Coach takes heart from Owls display

23 September 2014

Neil Thompson was pleased with the performance of a young Owls side against Brentford on Tuesday.

The Professional Development League 2 clash took place in the capital and finished 1-1, with defender Matt Penney on target for Wednesday.

And coach Thompson took pride in a resolute display featuring a raft of academy scholars.

He told “It was a really positive performance and a good experience for the younger lads.

“We had seven scholars out there so credit goes to them for performing well against a Brentford team that contained senior players.

“They did their jobs, dug in and I was pleased for them that they got something out of the game.

“I wouldn’t like to pick one player out because it was a strong team performance.”

The Development Squad are next in action on Sunday against Bristol City at Middlewood Road.
