Crystal Palace: Fans react to U23’s poor form - Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace under-23’s played in a fixture against Watford on Friday and lost 3-0. Journalist Matt Woosnam highlighted that this was not a freak result by tweeting out the statistic that the youth team have only won 2 out of their last 21 fixtures (Twitter). This left many fans worried about the future at Selhurst Park.

Derry is managing promising young players like Tyrik Mitchell and Brandon Pierrick, who were involved in the match. Pierrick featured once in the Premier League this season against Norwich (Transfermarkt) and was pivotal in the build-up to the Eagles equaliser.
