PL2 Division 2: Match day 14 round up

Match day 14 was one to remember in the Premier League 2 Division 2 with 24 goals flying in across four games on the 27th of January.

Middlesborough U21 2 – 2 Southampton U21

Dom Ballard opened the scoring for the visitors after just three minutes of play. However, Boro responded within a couple of minutes through Calum Kavanagh to tie the game up early doors. 15 minutes after the opener, Ballard claimed his second goal of the game and his tenth of the season to see the Saints ahead going into half time.

 The hosts responded once again, this time through left winger Pharrell Willis as he scored just before the hour mark. The point was enough to keep Southampton at the top of the league.

Norwich City U21 5 – 2 Leeds United U21

Leeds continue to pick up negative results since losing their unbeaten streak in the league as they slipped to second spot.

Norwich added to the woes of Leeds, going into half time three goals to the good thanks to goals from Marcelino Núñez, Adam Idah and a penalty from Abu Kamara.

Núñez and Kamara continued the hosts’ onslaught into the second 45 as they both netted their second of the game respectively. Substitute Connor Douglas claimed a brace of his own with goals in the 78th and 88th minute. But it wasn’t enough for Leeds as they suffered their third straight defeat.

Nottingham Forest U21 7 – 2 Derby County U21

As Forest continue to move up the league and enjoy a positive streak of form, their East Midlands rivals Derby are still searching for their first victory of the season.

Joshua Powell put Forest ahead just under 10 minutes in, but the Rams fired back with goals from Olamide Ibrahim and Osazee Aghatise to take the lead after half an hour. The hosts quickly responded with goals from Powell and Ateef Konaté to flip the game on its head once again. Konaté added a fourth to give his team a two-goal cushion into half time.

Forest began to settle in the second half as Oliver Hammond grabbed himself a goal to increase the distance between the rivals. Substitute Julian Larsson picked up a late brace to complete the hosts’ dominant performance.

West Bromwich Albion U21 0 – 4 Aston Villa U21

From the East Midlands to the West, there was another derby with plenty of goals as Villa picked up their fourth consecutive league win with a victory over rivals West Brom.

The Villans had a fast start and led by two goals after ten minutes, thanks to goals from Tommi O’Reilly and Brad Young. They held that lead going into half time.

Arjan Raikhy scored his first goal of the season early in the second half and Young would grab his second of the game to complete the visitors’ convincing win against their local rivals.
