U21s Manager Darren Purse

Ahead of Tuesday night's pre-season test, U21s Manager Darren Purse discussed his side's preparations so far, with a competitive outing swiftly following the midweek friendly.

"We're building into a really important game on Friday," began Darren. "A few of the boys are probably not yet where they need to be to play a full 90 minutes of competitive football, so Tuesday will be a good opportunity to build minutes. 

"We'll have to get the players ready a little bit quicker than we'd like to, but that's the challenge that we've been given, and we'll deal with it accordingly."
