Liverpool academy boss John Owens was delighted to see two of his youngsters earn reserve-team action last week.

He told "On Monday we saw the reserves play Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park. It was great to see David Amoo get about 30 minutes of action with Lauri Dalla Valle also coming on for the final 20 minutes.

"Lauri actually played a key role in our equaliser so that was a nice moment for him. I felt that they both came on and added some much needed enthusiasm to the game, which was very positive."
