Liverpool Reserves continued their impressive run of form by beating Merseyside rivals Everton Reserves 1-0 in Widness last night.
Nathan Eccleston, who made his debut for the first time in last week’s Carling Cup exit at the hands of Arsenal, followed by an appearance in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Fulham, got the only goal of the game.
Eccleston himself won a penalty after defender Shane Duffy tripped him just inside the box. Eccleston stepped up and scored the spot-kick just before half-time.
The game also saw good performances from Peter Gulacsi in the Liverpool Reserves goal, Robbie Threlfall in defence and a promising display from striker David Amoo.
The result means John McMahon’s side have won their last seven consecutive games, six of which have been in the Barclays Premier Reserve North Division.
Liverpool Reserves: Gulacsi, Mendy (Kohlert 85), Threlfall, Palsson, Mavinga, Irwin, Saric (Flora 89), Amoo, Eccleston, Poloskei, Kacaniklic (Brouwer 74). Unused subs: Hansen, Weijl.
