Bullen on last night’s U23 loss
After a 1-0 defeat to Hull City, the U23 coach said, “It was probably the toughest test we have had so far and they played an experienced side… It was a good test for our boys. We rode our luck on occasions but we got better as the game wore on.
"We had some good situations in the final third but we didn't test George Long in goal often enough. I think it was a fair result in the end but it was nice to get some of our boys back.”

Dominic Iorfa Snr on Dominic Iorfa Jnr’s international situation...
Speaking to allnigeriasoccer.com about his son’s international allegiance, the former player said, "Dominic was invited before. I will advise him to play for Nigeria but Nigeria have to talk to him. When Nigeria talk to him it's up to him to say yes he'll play.
"If he wants to play for Nigeria and at the end of the day Nigeria didn't invite him, what will you do? These are young players, Nigeria have to show their intention.
"I remember when Ikeme was at Wolverhampton Wanderers, Rohr went there and spoke to him and Ikeme, that time he was only 22 so he was interested to come and willing to play.
"Even Ikeme told him that he should come so he was ready. Now he moved to Sheffield Wednesday, he's doing well so it's for Nigeria to show their intention.
"If they talk to him he will now prepare his papers to change allegiance to Nigeria, he has played for England youth team up to U21.
“I spoke to him last week and he's ready to play for Nigeria.”
