Jones On Target Again For Reserves

17 year-old Chris Jones was on target again for the Reserves as they drew 2-2 with Bristol Rovers.

Lee Trundle put us ahead after 15 minutes with a free-kick and Jones doubled our lead just 3 minutes later.

Rovers scored before the break though as Sean Rigg got one back near the half hour mark and Craig Disley got the equaliser 3 minutes before the break.

The Reserves are playing Bristol City next on Wednesday 18th October at Port Talbot's Remax Stadium. The match kicks off at 7pm.

Is it time we give him a go in the first team?

Chris Jones needs to be given 15/20 minutes in the first team when we are 2 or 3 goals up. It is not right to bring him on when we are behind and chasing the game. That would do nothing for his confidence.

I don't think the time is now for 17 year-old's to be in the side though do you? He has very little experience and the reserves is a totally different game to the League. He's now starting to make the subs bench which is what he should be aiming for at the moment I think, and I agree with willow, start giving him 10-20 minutes maybe and build him up from there and see how he does.

Maybe you should put him on the bench or something just to build his confidence and he could become a quality player.

I was at the game yesterday and whilst the talk is about the goals by Jones and Trundle more worryingly was the defensive lapses which seems to affect both the first and reserve teams. The opposing forwards were allowed too much freedom and were not challenged early enough. We will get punished far more heavily in the league than when playing a pretty ordinary reserve team like Bristol Rovers. The highlight of the day was hearing Kenny Jackett talking to his opposite numbers when walking across the pitch for the second half saying ..... "I have been in the game 25 years and I still get abuse". Some of it might be justified, but an awful lot isn't.
