Goalless Draw For Youth Team

25 February 2013

Notts County youth team fought out a rare 0-0 draw in Saturday's encounter with their Burton Albion counterparts.

Notts enjoyed the better of the game but were unable to find the cutting edge in front of goal, which has seen them hit fives and sixes in recent weeks.

The best opportunity to seal the points came in the 65th minute, when skipper Kyle Dixon was unable to find the net from the penalty spot.

Youth team coach Brett Adams remained pleased with his side's efforts, after a disappointing 7-1 defeat the previous weekend.

He told the official site: "We were disciplined defensively, which was pleasing after conceding seven last weekend.

"But, we weren't as ruthless in the final third as we have been - we always expect to score.

"I was proud of the work-rate from the first minute to the last and I thought we were the better team overall.

"I thought we deserved to take the three points, it was just a shame we missed the penalty."

The youth team are back in action on Tuesday, when they will travel to Grimsby Town.

However, they are without a number of key players, who picked up injuries in the weekend's fixture.

Adams said: "Harry Andrews, Alex Kenlock, Brad McGowan and Romello Nangle will all miss out.

"We'll be travelling with an inexperienced side but it gives us another chance to see what we've got coming through next year."

The youth team will face Grimsby at 1pm on Tuesday afternoon, with the fixture taking place at Cheapside Training Ground, Waltham, Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, DN37 0HT.
