Match report: Wilson double earns U23s draw at St Mary’s

10th April 2017

Harry Wilson’s heroic double rescued a 2-2 draw for Liverpool U23s in their Premier League 2 clash with Southampton at St Mary’s on Monday evening.

The young Reds were on the back foot for much of the first half and fell behind in the 30th minute when Alfie Jones converted from close range.

Mike Garrity’s side improved in the second period, with Wilson at the forefront of their chase for a leveller, but Olufela Olomola doubled the advantage for the home side with a firm finish.

The captain finally found the net just under a quarter of an hour from time, coolly beating the goalkeeper from Kevin Stewart’s assist, and then snatched a point in the 91st minute after winning a penalty, seeing the spot-kick saved and tapping in the rebound.

Southampton made the more industrious start to the game on a crisp and clear evening on the south coast, and might have taken the lead within 20 seconds of kick-off had Josh Sims’ curler not deflected off Conor Masterson.

Undeterred, they set about creating a string of further chances.

Sims sent Ryan Seager into shooting territory in the left channel with an angled pass, prompting a well-timed block by Masterson, before the Saints forwards each cracked efforts over Caoimhin Kelleher’s crossbar.
