Latics Reserves 3-2 Liverpool Reserves

Latics Reserves 3-2 Liverpool Reserves


Wigan Athletic reserves emerged as victors of this Wednesday night tussle against Liverpool reserves at Robin Park Arena as Graham Barrows young team continued their end of season good form

Trailing 1-0 to a 27th Gerardo Bruna minute penalty after Adam Buxton had up-ended a Liverpool player in the box, the Latics turned on the style in the second half to take a commanding 3-1 lead.

Jordan Rugg came on as a half-time substitute and with less than a minute of the second half gone he had levelled the scores blasting home from six yards, another close range effort this time from Tomasz Kupisz saw the Latics take the lead on 66 minutes.

Rugg turned provider this time and played in Kupisz who made no mistake from six yards. On 68 minutes it was 3-1.

Young Spaniard Abian Serrano was brought on for his debut and made an immediate impact. Serrano played a lovely ball to Kupisz who fired across the Liverpool box to Daniel Redmond who coolly cut inside two Liverpool defenders and slotted home.

Nicolaj Kohlert pulled a goal back for Liverpool on 88 minutes but the Latics 2nd string stayed firm to continue their cracking end of season form


Latics: Nicholls; Crane (Serrano, 67), Buxton, Mustoe, Redmond; Breeze, McManaman; Kupisz, Morris, Boothman; Jukes (Rugg, 46 (Willis, 84))

Subs: Hare, Girvan

Liverpool: Gulacsi, Mendy, Cooper, Mavinga, Palsson, Irwin, Duran (Kolhert 78), Amoo (Saric 70), Bruna, Brouwer, Dalla Valle (Kacaniklic 62).

Subs: Oldfield, Sokolik.

Reserve boss Graham Barrow was obviously delighted by the win and speaking to the clubs official website Barrow said: "There wasn't a great deal wrong with the first-half performance except maybe for a bit of apprehension, which was probably down to the fact that we were missing some key players.

"We made one or two positional changes and told them to get out and show what they can do, and thankfully it worked a treat.

"There were some fantastic performances all over the pitch, and the more senior players really came through and led by example.

"Overall I was delighted for them and it was great that the gaffer was here to see them triumph. The results over the last few weeks are what the players deserve after a hard-working season.

"I would like to pay credit to Dave Watson and the work he's been doing in bringing through and developing some excellent young talent at the club. Whenever they've stepped up they've done extremely well and got themselves a fantastic result."

"Callum Morris is a real cool operator in the middle and looked very comfortable, whilst Breezey played a similar role to Jon Routledge, putting himself about and winning the ball for us in crucial areas.

"In the past we've struggled a little when key players have been out, and that's credit to their contribution to the team.

"But we threw out a challenge to those players who came and asked if they could make a name for themselves and give us a performance, which is exactly what they did."
