Pompey Reserves 1-4 Liverpool Reserves

Dave Nugent - making his latest comeback attempt from injury - was among plenty of 1st team players who featured in a behind closed doors reserve friendly with Liverpool, which we lost 4-1.

This is the report from the Pompey Site...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

==========

NUGENT BACK IN ACTION AGAINST LIVERPOOL

A fit-again David Nugent could not prevent a Pompey reserve side losing 4-1 to Liverpool in a behind-closed-doors friendly.

The striker played 45 minutes in the match at the club's Eastleigh training ground - his first action since being sidelined by groin surgery.

And he made an immediate impression, winning a 19th-minute penalty which Arnold Mvuemba stroked home.

But that was as good as it got for a strong Blues side containing Kanu, John Utaka and Younes Kaboul.

A handball by Kaboul gifted Liverpool an equaliser on 25 minutes, Vitor Flora sending Jamie Ashdown the wrong way from the resulting spot-kick.]

The Blues went behind four minutes later when Mikil San Jose sidefooted home a corner.

Utaka fired narrowly over as the Blues tried to find a response. But it was Liverpool who scored again, midfielder Steve Irwin turning in a cross to make it 3-1.

Pompey twice came close to pulling one back in a game played in torrential rain, with Kanu shooting narrowly wide and Kaboul having a shot cleared off the line.

But Liverpool had the final say when substitute Jordy Brouwer completed the scoring with 10 minutes left, finishing a cross from close range.

Pompey: Ashdown; Lauren, Kaboul, Wilson, D.Traore; Nugent (Duffy 46), Mvuemba, Hughes, Utaka; Kanu, Sahar.

Liverpool: Bouzanis; Mendy, Ayala, San Jose, Kelly; Crowther, Spearing, Irwin, Weijl; Pacheco, Flora.

Duffy replaced Nugent !!!! - Not up front surely ...

Looking at the line up Chix I would think that Nugent played in an AMF role, or on the wing, with Kanu and Sahar upfront. Shame that our team was made up of players that have all been in the first team, yet I do not know any of the Liverpool players.
sneakay
What is scary is that line up could be our first team. If the big names roll out & don't get replaced. What a horrible thought. Ignore it.

Just shows you the talent Rafa has had to sign for the future due to financial constrictions. Come on ye Reds!!!

That wasn't very nice - sorry Matt! (Mind you, if I don't keep it light, I could just chuck myself off a bridge!)
