Chelsea youngster shows his potential again

Young striker Patrick Bamford maintained his impressive scoring form by finding the net again, but Chelsea’s reserves were beaten 3-2 by Wolves.

Bamford, the Blues’ pre-deadline signing from Nottingham Forest, showed his potential with another cool finish.

He opened the scoring after 12 minutes when he fired home after latching onto Islam Feruz’s pass.

Jake Kempton equalised by pouncing on the loose ball after an error by keeper James Russell.

Bamford turned provider to set up Lucas Piazon for Chelsea’s second, before Nenad Milijas scored to send the teams in at half-time level at 2-2.

The second period was less eventful and Liam McAlinden headed in the winner with 14 minutes remaining.

Nathaniel Chalobah featured after recovering from a knock he picked up in a match against Swansea’s reserves last week.
