They won 4-1 against Barnet in a friendly today. Sakho didn't play, neither did Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben Woodburn, Ovie Ejaria, Joe Gomez and Sheyi Ojo. I'm not sure if this was to keep them fresh for the next game (Man United) or whether they will be playing a part against Southampton tomorrow evening. Probably a combination of the two reasons.
Anyway, Brooks Lennon scored a brace, Harry Wilson scored one and Jack Dunn scored the other.
Lennon is one who I believe has gone under the radar this season and he has put in lots of good quality, consistent performances. Nice to see Jack Dunn finding his feet again and great to see Wilson keeping up his good form. I'm very disappointed that he didn't get a shot against Plymouth on the weekend but I suppose he is not seen as ready for the first team just yet.
Next up is Man United on the 16th for the U23s and this is a huge game. This one is a home game for us so I urge people to get out and support our future in a big game for them. The quality of their games are always of a high standard it seems as well.

No problem Higgins, I'm just looking forward to the return of Premier League 2

What was this game in aid of? I didn't even recognise the Barnet squad - was it the EFL Trophy or something?
