Koskela double helps reserves to friendly victory

Last updated : 06 January 2005 By Michael Morris
A Tony Koskela double and goals from Stuart Fleetwood and Jamal Easter helped City to a friendly reserve win at Cheltenham Town yesterday.

City were 2 down after 5 mins but rallied to make it 2 - 2 at the break. Koskela's second goal and Easter's effort made it 4 - 2 before Cheltenham ended the scoring.

Koskela is set for a place in the squad for Saturday's FA Cup tie with Blackburn. Lennie said before the reserve game that Koskela would be in the 16. Inamoto is set to be left out so he is not cup tied. Joe Ledley could also be back as Lennie will look to freshen up the team after 4 unbeaten league games. Either player could start in place of Inamoto.

Don't tinker with it too much Lennie, after 4 matches unbeaten and back to back wins these players will relish the chance to play Premiershop opposition.
