Bojaj scores again in first defeat of the season
- Town's Under-21 side loses at Hull City
- Striker Flo Bojaj scores once again
- Two late goals deny the Terriers
A couple of stunning Hull City goals saw Town’s Under-21 side defeated for the first time in 2015/16 in the Professional Development League 2 North in North Ferriby on Monday night.
Frankie Bunn’s side started well and forced home goalkeeper Rory Watson into two good saves inside the first quarter of an hour through Flo Bojaj and Duane Holmes, but the Tigers grew into the game and hit the post in the 23rd minute through Jarrod Bowen.
The first goal followed two minutes later, with Conor Townsend putting the home side ahead through an expertly executed free-kick from around 25 yards out.
The young Terriers continued to create, with Jake Charles, Rekeil Pyke and William Boyle all going close, but the search for the equaliser continued into the final five minutes.
Home substitute Greg Olley then broke away and rounded Town ‘keeper Ed Wilczynski, only for a covering defender to get back and clear the danger.
That paved the way for Town striker Flo Bojaj to level things up seconds later from just inside the penalty area. That goal was the second year professional’s third of the season in as many games; he’s scored in every Under-21 fixture so far.
However, Hull’s Max Clark had other ideas and restored Hull’s lead moments after the restart through a stunning long range strike.
The score-line was then given an unfair look when Hull sub Johan Ter Horst netted an added time third, with a huge deflection sending the ball looping over Town’s stranded custodian.
Town’s team (4-4-2):
Ed Wilczynski; Jack Senior, William Boyle, Joe Wilkinson (c), Jacob Hanson; Jake Charles (Sondre Tronstad, 66), Philip Billing, Regan Booty, Duane Holmes; Rekeil Pyke (Ronan Coughlan, 76), Flo Bojaj
Sam Guthrie, Fraser Horsfall, Ben Holmes
