Spurs under 23’s versus Leicester: (match preview)
Thursday evenings PL2 game between Spurs and Leicester city under 23’s will be a highly emotional game for all involved with Tottenham Hotspur football club. It comes just under two weeks after the tragic passing of Spurs under 23 head coach, Ugo Ehiogu. Thursdays game will be an incredibly tough night for our development squad, it’s their first game since Ugo Ehiogu passed away. All proceeds for todays game will be donated to a charity being set up by the family of Ugo Ehiogu. In addition fans are given the opportunity to make a voluntary donation to the charity when collecting their programme. There are just two games remaining for our under 23’s this season they need only a point to guarantee their status in group 1. The foxes who are fighting for survival, must win the game if they are to stay up. Steve Beaglehole’s side includes some talented players, with midfielder Hamza Choudhury and right back Darnell Johnson players to watch out for. The game will be the penultimate one ever played at White Hart Lane, thus giving many the opportunity to say a final goodbye to our beloved ground. The result of today’s game is secondary, we need to get behind the team and support our players, hopefully a lot of money will be raised for the charity. COYS
