KILBEY BRACE HELPS RESERVES SINK SPURS

Tottenham Reserves 2 Pompey Reserves 3

Pompey Reserves twice came from behind to heap more misery on Tottenham at Leyton Orient's Brisbane Road.

It was a superb triumph for Paul Groves' young side, who were ably assisted by their more experienced team-mates, including a fit-again Jerome Thomas.

Tom Kilbey bagged a brace while Gael N'Lundulu also scored, as Pompey's academy prospects showed they were hungry and undaunted at stepping up a level.

Most of the first-half chances went the Blues' way and N'Lundulu twice headed over the bar after being found in acres of space by Glen Little and Richard Duffy.

Then, after Andre Blackman had been tripped on the edge of the area, Thomas' free-kick was diverted narrowly off target by Djimi Traore.

At the other end, Jamie Ashdown made a fine save to deny Adel Taarabt from 20 yards and keep the scores level.

The hosts then struck the post before taking the lead on 30 minutes with Charlie Daniels' low free-kick going in off the woodwork.

Pompey's reply was almost immediate. A free-kick was worked right towards Duffy, who burst down the wing and fired in a cross that was headed home by KILBEY.

They almost took the lead with a lightning break moments later. Thomas linked up well with the over-lapping Blackman and the latter rattled the crossbar with a fierce strike.

But on the stroke of half-time, Taarabt put Spurs ahead with a low strike after making space for himself in the area.

Half Time: Tottenham 2 Pompey 1

The second half began with Daniels firing narrowly wide after latching onto the otherwise anonymous Hossam Ghaly's through ball.

But it was Pompey who were looking more dangerous and N'Lundulu wasted a good effort when he should have passed to the better-placed Little.

The Blues soon found themselves level, however. Kilbey was twice denied by Cesar Sanchez after meeting Little's superb cross, but N'LUNDULU managed to find the net at the third attempt.

And it was not long before they were ahead when KILBEY ghosted into the area to glance home Duffy's cross.

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.

Versatile former Arsenal man in on trial?

Deacon, who started out with Arsenal has been with Stevenage and Crawley with the latter releasing him at the end of last season. Cookie will 'run the rule' over him in pre-season?
