Looking forward to Liverpool
Neil Wood previews the Under-23s' clash on Merseyside...
“I think it's one of the big rivalries, Liverpool versus Manchester United,” he said. “I think it's a fixture everyone looks forward to seeing and when it is on the calendar. We played them early on in the season and it was a similar story as we gave away soft goals which took a bit of shine away from the performance. I feel we've improved and come a long way since then, in terms of performance and the progression of the team and individuals. That's going along the right path.
“We went into the Leicester game not playing a friendly as we had one cancelled. But we've made sure the Birmingham friendly was almost an extension of training and what we worked on. It's been a slow learning process but hopefully it's sinking in.“
