Ten changes for The Gas for this Football League Trophy Group Stage encounter with Chelsea’s U21 side.
I hope we progress to the knock out stage this evening, as I feel this competition offers a really good opportunity to get to Wembley. It is a shame that they have devalued the competition by letting U21 sides enter. Hence the reason I am not there today, out of principle.
Both sides have early chances but it is The Gas that open the scoring with a goal from Luke Thomas after 16 minutes. The perfect start!
Chelsea U21 equalise just before half time with a Bristol Rovers own goal.
Half time 1-1.
Chelsea U21 strike just after half time, The Gas caught napping in the box and concede a soft goal. 1-2.
Full time 1-2.
The Gas lose to Chelsea U21 conceding goals either side of half time. Luke Thomas scoring his first goal for The Gas early on.
