Draw at Millwall to start under-23 season
The under-23s have drawn 1-1 this afternoon at Millwall with Bobby Thomas scoring our goal in the first half and Millwall equalising after the break.
Rob Harker came closest to scoring in a quiet opening, seeing an effort cleared off the line, but just past the half hour we got ourselves in front with a goal from central defender Thomas (pictured) with a header into the bottom corner.
But Millwall were level on the hour through a George Alexander goal and were close to taking the lead soon after. It wasn’t all Millwall though and Oliver Younger was the next to have one cleared off the line and we almost won it in stoppage time with a Josh Benson shot that went just wide.
In the end though, a point each to kick off the season.
