Also notable that Paddy Bamford is on the bench. Expect Bamford to come on at some point.

Any reports on how Brown and Bamford performed?

Jonny, we were the better side against Newcastle however the game was a mirror of the first team, lots of possession but unable to break down a steadfast defence.
Brown showed occasional glimpses of what he can do but against a (at times) a ten man defence, he struggled.
Bamford did nothing all night.
I have to say, we had better players on the pitch. Leif Davis had a good game, Clarke Oduor looked the most likely to create through his pace, Callum Nicell looks as though he has a future.
I know that the 1st team players need to get their match fitness up somehow but when the likes of Brown, Roberts, Harrison, Saiz, Baker and now Bamford have played the team looks significantly worse than when they don't.
Sure that's because these guys are not used to playing as part of the development squad and the development squad are not used to having the 1st teamers in their midst.
