Young striker eager to make an impression againt Spurs

18 September 2023

Brad Ihionvien is looking to continue the progress the U's are currently making.

The young striker has been a regular in the U's squad in the early weeks of the season, and wants to come out on top against the Premier League youngsters when the U's take on Spurs U21s on Tuesday night.

He feels that it won't just be the yonug Col U players that will be tested in teh EFL Trophy game being played here at the JobServe Community Stadium.

"I think it'll be a good test for our young players, including me, and their young players. I wouldn't say we are the best or they are the best, it'll just be who comes out on top on the pitch at the end of the day."

"The Gaffer has been saying about the progress we have been making since the start of the season, and we need to keep that up."

Ihionvien came off the bench on Saturday in the 1-1 draw against Mansfield Town, but admitted feeling disappointed immediately following the final whistle.

"It felt like a defeat to me, because I felt that we controlled large parts of the game and just needed that second goal. But it wasn’t a defeat, it was a draw, and we have to take the point - and take the positives."

"It will be a bit different no doubt on Tuesday, this game will be a bit less physical but we’ll still aim to put in another positive performance and get a positive result. 

On his own preperations for the game, he concluded: "I’ve got to be ready at all times - obviously a large part of this season, I’ve been coming off the bench."

"Before every game, everyone says to be ready to come on. All of us will be ready and raring to go, whether we start or come on as a sub."
