Liverpool U23s coach Mike Garrity believes his exciting team are guaranteed to entertain and score goals as they return to Premier League 2 action this afternoon by hosting Derby County at the Kirkby Academy.
Kick-off is at 1pm GMT and you can watch the game exclusively live on LFCTV and LFCTV GO with our coverage starting at 12.30pm.
Garrity’s charges have netted 12 goals in their past three games and enjoyed an excellent season so far. They are currently in third place in Premier League 2, are into the last 16 of the Premier League Cup and a semi-final tie also awaits in the Lancashire Senior Cup.
The coach insists he has been more than happy with the way things have gone since he took command of the side following Michael Beale’s departure from the club.
“We scored six against Huddersfield Town in the cup last Sunday and three against Tottenham before that, so it’s always a good sign when you are creating chances and putting them away as well,” Garrity told Liverpoolfc.com.
“We’ve got some really good players in the attacking half of the pitch and when they go forward, these lads are dangerous and there is always a chance we will get goals.
“At this level we are at, the be all and end all isn’t winning and losing games, there is a bigger picture and it’s about pushing these players to the next level and the first team, but if we can win games along the way and perform in the right way then we are moving in the right direction.
