Town’s table-topping U23s extended their unbeaten run to 10 games as they defeated Bristol City 2-0 at Bath City’s Twerton Park.
Shane McLoughlin put Gerard Nash’s side in front in the 17th minute from the penalty spot after a Robins defender had been penalised for handball, then on 36 Bailey Clements’s cross was turned into his own net by Tom Harrison.
U23s: Wright, Ronan, Clements, C Smith, Marshall, Ndaba, McLoughlin, El Mizouni (Hughes 81), K Brown, McGavin (Foudil 77), Dobra. Unused: Egan, Vega, T Smith.

I really hope Lambert gives our U23s more first-team opportunities than Hurst did. Our hands are fairly tied to the transfer window, the first team hasn't been cutting the mustard, we really may need to consider changing things up a bit. Klug tried to play it fairly safe by playing the first teamers and it didn't work out (even with Lambert watching) when you would of thought they'd of been playing their hearts out to try and impress the new boss watching on. The current first team players have simply not been up toe the task this season, unless Lambert can squeeze extra from them it might need some of the U23s to try and inject some new ideas and energy into the first team. The ones that have been given a rare opportunity here and there have rarely let us down.

Impressive result away from home with a team of youngsters

And imagine what this group would be doing with Morris, Woolfenden, Emmanuel, Nydam and even Drinan in there. Let alone the job they could/should be doing for the 1st team.

And can we recall Woolfenden back from his loan? I'd welcome him back with open arms! I was impressed with him against West Ham. He looked very assured overall against players worth multiple times value our entire team!

The players out on loan seem to have fallen between U23 and first team. With many of the senior players performing so poorly I hope PL will bring them back asap.

I want our young players to succeed as much as the next fan, but i think a dose of realism is needed. Morris has an excellent record at all youth levels, much like Rhodes, Bowditch, Marriott et al before him. But he's gone on loan to a lower league club where the environment is different on so many levels and he's not getting in the team. I see no reason why they wouldn't pick him if he was showing he was good enough. So i fail to see how he could get in our first team now when undoubtedly Jackson or Sears would get in the Forest Green first team. Same for Drinan.
Woolfenden however, is seemingly shining on loan and part of me wants him back, but part of me wants him to stay there till January and return more confident and into a hopefully more confident defence. Bringing him back now may ruin him a bit. Imagine if Lambert signed a quality CB and brought Woolfenden back in to play and learn alongside him in Jan. Lankester played consistently well for the U-23s and got his chance. I'd like to see Rowe get a run out because why not - he can't do any less than Ward or Graham or Edun - give him a go, if he doesn't cut it then cut our losses and sell him to a lower league team
