Nsiala, Keane and Folami in U23s Facing Forest
Monday, 9th Sep 2019 12:30

Toto Nsiala, Will Keane and Ben Folami are all set to feature for the U23s when they take on Nottingham Forest at Portman Road this evening (KO 7pm).

Centre-half Nsiala will be involved in his first game since suffering a hamstring injury at the Interwetten Cup in Meppen in July.

Striker Keane will be playing his second U23s match having rejoined the Blues last month having undergone hamstring surgery early in the summer.

Fellow frontman Folami has been out of action since tearing an achilles tendon in the 1-0 U23s victory at Cardiff in January.

The U23s, whose manager Gerard Nash won’t be departing for the boss’s job at League of Ireland St Patrick’s Athletic, Stephen O’Donnell having been handed the position last week, are without a point from their first three Professional Development League Two South games this season.

Meanwhile, U23s midfielder Brett McGavin's loan spell with Vanarama National League South side Concord Rangers has come to an end. McGavin, 19, made six appearances for the Beachboys, scoring once.

Elsewhere, the U18s won 1-0 at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday morning, sub Michael Bareck netting the goal shortly after coming on.

Good to hear Nsiala, Keane and Folami are on the mend. Hopefully no further set backs tonight and the run out proves a positive step forwards towards their full fitness.

I hadn't realised Folami was anywhere near coming back. Thats great news- hope he comes through unscathed.

Nsiala finished last season well. Hope he is 100 percent soon and keeps improving

Has someone flipped the tables over from last season or are we just giving everyone else a head start?
First team 2018/19 = rubbish, U23's = brilliant.
First team 2019/20 = brilliant, U23's = rubbish.
What gives?

You have to imagine that having picked up so many absolute gems from our youth setup, the likes of the U23's are probably a little 'weakened'.

Had we not been promoting these lads to the 1st team, then maybe the U23's would be doing better. But I'm sure everyone would agree this is definitely the way round we all want it.

These games are glorified friendlies, Lambert doesn't take them too seriously and tends to access them in training before deciding if they are ready for the first team.
