Newcastle Reserve Team manager Adam Sadler praised the fighting spirit of his team as they miraculously came back from two goals down to snatch a dramatic draw against Bolton Wanderers, with two goals in injury time.
Adam Sadler – another good point for the Reserves
As we said after the game last night these youngsters donâ€™t have the experience to know when they are beaten, and they still think anything is possible in a game. That being true, who needs experience? 😀
Goals from Shola Ameobi (91) and then Wesley Ngo Baheng (93) completed a tremendous comeback, and adds to the dramatic results this young side have accomplished over these last 9 games. The run started when our 5 new young recruits arrived in January. The boys have just one defeat in that time.
Adam Sadler was rightly delighted with the point, as he spoke to the Official Newcastle United Site, before getting on the bus for the trip back to Tyneside:
“I’ve spoken before about the team spirit and team ethic here and about fighting until the bitter end,” “We didn’t play as well as we have in recent weeks but we didn’t give up and have scored two very good goals.â€
“Shola’s was a great header and Wesley has came off the bench and showed he can always be a threat, he’s getting better game by game and showed the quality we needed.”
“Peter Ramage has shown a great attitude and looked in control.â€ “I’m delighted he did well and in front of Kevin Keegan, Terry McDermott and Chris Hughton who were there to watch.”
Senegal captain Lamine Diatta played the full game at center-back, and Peter Ramage made his comeback after being out since last August with his ACL, and the 24-year-old came through 65 minutes of the game. It looks like Ashington born Peter had a good game.
Peterâ€™s contract at Newcastle runs out in the summer, so he is playing for his career in these last7 weeks of the season.
It’s good to see Kevin and his coaches at these reserve games, even when they are away from home, it shows a togetherness at the club, and the youngsters must love it.
Still no word on how Diatta played.
