💬 Ellis Johnson previews West Ham U23 clash

Youngster looks ahead to Premier League Cup group stage fixture

17 January 2022

Young defender Ellis Johnson says he does not feel much pressure, despite Exeter City knowing they have to win to have any chance of keeping their Premier League Cup hopes alive.

Only a win will do with two matches remaining - against the Hammers and Wolves - if they are to progress, with other results also having to go their way. 

"We do and we don't, because we're facing a Premier League academy - they have more to lose than we do," Ellis said.

"But we do want to try and stay in the competition - there's a little but of pressure there it's not massive. 

"It's a really good test for us and it's good for our development to play against some of the best young players in the country."
