Reaction: May on Chelsea under-21s

26 October 2021

Alfie May is hoping a good performance in the Papa John's Trophy penalty shootout win over Chelsea under-21s on Tuesday night will help propel him into Michael Duff's thoughts for Saturday's League One fixture with Sheffield Wednesday.

The front man was one of the most senior members of the squad in Tuesday's game, as after a goalless draw the Robins triumphed on penalty kicks, with May himself converting successfully from 12 yards.

He was pleased with the performances delivered by the team and the young players who were involved in the squad as the club's Papa John's Trophy campaign for the season was brought to a close.

"The main thing that was said in the changing room was sticking together and I thought we did that across the 90 minutes," he said.

"It's nice to come off and win the penalties because I thought we performed really well.

"These type of games as a senior pro you can probably play them down a bit. We were out of the competition before we started and you could think 'oh we're playing in the Papa John's', but I can play every single game. I enjoy playing football.

"I wanted to try and get back in the team as well. I've missed out the last couple of games and the lads have done well so it's down to me to play these games and try and do my best to get back into the team."
