Spurs under 23’s versus West Ham United: (match preview)
Wayne Burnett’s development side play their first home game of the PL2 season later today when they host London rivals West Ham at the training centre (kick off:12pm). After a positive 2-2 draw with Luton town in the Checkatrade trophy in midweek, I’m expecting Burnett to make a few alterations to that side for tomorrows game. This could see Luke Amos and Shayon Harrison return from injury, whilst it could also mean game time for Georgiou and Carter-Vickers considering its at the training centre. It will be a stern test for the lads as they come up against Terry Westley’s side which includes players such as skilful Norwegian forward Martin Samuelsen and promising striker Toni Martinez. Though I’m expecting a tough game for the youngsters in what will be an interesting match, I’m optimistic for our chances of registering our first win of the season. Both 18 year olds Japhet Tanganga and Jack Roles have been linked to loans with league 2 club Exeter, it will be interesting to see if either feature tomorrow. As always, I will be in attendance for tomorrows game and will be providing an in depth match report. COYS
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Whiteman, Eyoma, Maghoma, Carter-Vickers, Bennetts, Skipp, Amos(C), Shashoua, Harrison, Georgiou, Sterling.

One to watch: The hammers young forward and former Valencia player, Toni Martinez.
