U21s Report: Early Akinwale goal seals three points for Palace on Merseyside – News

The first chance of note for the Eagles came on the hour-mark. David Omilabu used his Tricky feet to dance into the box from the right-hand side and managed to cut it back across into Kaden Rodney who saw his first-time effort go just over the bar.

It was back and forth between the two sides in the final half an hour, although neither could create any gilt-edged chances. Omilabu came close with 15 minutes remaining after Wells-Morrison worked it brilliantly to him, however the forward saw his effort charged down by Mrozek.

Fionn Mooney broke free, following an Akinwale flick-on, deep into second-half stoppage time. The Winger skipped past Mrozek and managed to fashion a shot on goal that went agonizingly wide of the mark.

Although he missed the chance to put the game to bed, the referee called a halt to proceedings shortly afterwards. The result means Paddy McCarthy’s Eagles now sit third in the PL2 Division 1, three points behind leaders Chelsea.
