Liverpool Reserve coach Hughie McAuley had words of praise for his young team in the 1-0 win over Wolves at Wrexham's Racecourse Ground that saw Antonio Barragan net the winner for the second game running.
Barragan scored the only goal of the game in the 33rd minute after a superb through ball from Darren Potter. Barragan played right side midfield and also ended the game as captain after David Raven limped off the field.
McAuley told Liverpoolfc.tv: "It was a good game I thought and I thought we adapted well tactically. Antonio scored a good goal. It was a good astute pass from Darren Potter to put him in and Antonio finished really well from a difficult angle.
"It was good to see Darren Potter back and he gave us that little bit of experience in midfield.
"Antonio played very well and he has good pace and is quality on the ball down the right hand side. He is scoring goals as well which is a real bonus for us.
"We made one or two slight alterations at half time that we thought would give us better control of the game but Wolves worked hard and played long balls into our penalty area and put us under a lot of pressure, but I thought we defended very well."
McAuley also had praise for recent signings Miki Roque and Besian Idrizaj who have strengthened the reserve team this season.
McAuley said: "Miki Roque is playing regular football for us this season at centre half and he is a very resilient defender who puts his foot in and competes very well. He picks up second balls and his distribution is by and large very good. He is a good competitor, he understands the game very well and we are getting 100 per cent out of him in every game.
"Our new boy from Austria Besian Idrizaj made his first start for us as a second striker and he generally plays there in that position. He needs more time to adapt but once he does that he will be a good player for us. He is an asset, likes getting forward and can score goals."
The Reds coach also had kind words for midfielder Lee Peltier who is playing regular football again after missing the last season with a back injury. Peltier moved to Melwood in the summer from the Academy.
McAuley said: "Lee missed last season but he is fit now. He is a good footballer, a natural footballer and he competes well and all the time. He can play a variety of positions, he shows good awareness and is a good passer of the ball."
