Views from Chesterimp following Tuesday night’s 3-2 win at home against Manchester United U21s in the EFL Trophy: “Lots of positives out of that but the inability to defend a lead comfortably a worry, though as at Shrews it was a result of injury and circumstance.

The more we can play Bishop the better the season will be. Scully looks to be getting the consistency which has frustrated MA. Good game time for a few of the others, shout out for Longdon who reminded us there’s a good player there, his challenge and cross for Scully’s 3rd capped a fine performance.”

sedgleyimp: “Decent win it looks like. I Hope Scully and any others don’t have injuries that will keep them out.

MA wasn’t happy with this scheduling hence the ‘we’ll play them with 10 and only name 3 on the bench idea’ but will be glad to get the game out of the way with a win.”

hulloutpost: “A good workout and minutes for the center backs, Bishop and Fiorini.

You can see what N’Lundulu’s game is about but he will need a fair bit of experience and match sharpness before he can become a consistent L1 player. We saw flashes of some good hold-up play, but work rate/fitness and finishing to be worked on.

The last 25 minutes were a bit shambolic mainly due to squad fitness and injury issues, but overall a very enjoyable first hour with some excellent football played and confidence building to boot.

Fingers crossed on the injuries!”

Scotimp: “I really enjoyed that, should have been at least six ahead by the time they scored. Scully a real livewire, deserved the hat-trick. Nlundulu frustrating, but there is definitely a dangerous player in there – loved the way he kept dropping into No.10 territory to find the ball. And Bishop outstanding for 60 minutes – we really missed his control in the middle once he went off, a la Shrewsbury.

Hannibal looks a proper player despite being a narky little git – would like to see him on loan.”
