Chelsea Under-18s are now nine games unbeaten in all competitions but they had to be content with a point as they drew 0-0 with Fulham at Motspur Park this morning.

Andy Myers’ men hit the woodwork on two occasions but were unable to find a way past home keeper George Wickens.

Marcel Lavinier twice went close to breaking the deadlock in the early stages of the match. His first shot forced home keeper Wickens into making a save while his second effort went narrowly wide.

Chelsea rattled the woodwork on 18 minutes when Ian Maatsen’s cross was met by defender Sam McClelland who saw his effort pushed onto the post by Wickens.

The Blues were to hit the woodwork for a second time just after the half hour mark when Lavinier struck a thunderbolt from 18 yards which cannoned off the bar before Wickens pushed a Clinton Mola effort to safety.

The second half saw substitute Armando Broja send a shot just wide after being played in by Henry Lawrence but in truth, the game fizzed out with chances being few and far between.

Chelsea are back in action next Saturday when Reading are the visitors to Cobham in the Under-18 Premier League.
