WANDERERS Under-18s saw their six-game unbeaten run ended after a 4-2 home defeat to Hull City on Saturday.

It was a disappointing result for Nicky Spooner's side after they led 2-0 at the halfway point of the U18 Professional Development League clash.

The young Whites began brightly and dominated from the first whistle, looking to attack Hull at every opportunity.

And they made the breakthrough early on when Luca Connell fired home from distance after winning the ball and advancing towards goal.

They doubled their advantage on 15 minutes when Laurence Smith tried his luck from similar distance to Connell and saw his effort fly in.

Two up at the break, the Whites were comfortable and could have even been further ahead with Eddie Brown and Luca Navarro also going close.

But they were a shadow of the team who played so well in the first half after the interval.

Within five minutes, Hull had scored two quickfire goals to level the scoreline and looked the more intent on victory boosted by that.

Wanderers missed chances to regain the lead before Hull completed their turnaround with a third goal from a corner before adding a fourth.

Spooner said: "We dominated the game from the start, picking off Hull's passes and looking to play forward.

"But after such a good performance in the first half you wouldn't have recognised the team in the second.

"The second-half performance was very disappointing after such a good performance in the first."

The U18s are on the road on Saturday when they visit Huddersfield Town in the league.
