Spurs under 23’s versus Leicester City: (match preview)
Date: Friday 13 October, kick off: 1:00pm
Venue : Hotspur way
Head2Heads: 4-1 Leicester, 2-0 Leicester.
Our under 23’s host Leicester City at the training centre on Friday afternoon in the PL2, following a two week international break. Wayne Burnett’s side will be hoping to replicate the excellent performance that they produced against AFC Wimbledon in the Checkatrade trophy last Tuesday despite losing 4-3. Our lads come up against Steve Beaglehole’s Leicester City, who have started the season in fine form collecting 10 points from their first six league games. The foxes who defeated Barnsley 3-1 in premier league cup action on Tuesday, have won their last four matches in all competitions. As always these games provide a tough test for the Spurs youngsters regardless of the result, but I’m just looking forward to seeing this talented group of players in action again after a short break. I shall be reporting on tomorrows game, and will have my match report up on Friday evening. COYS
Team news: As far as injuries are concerned I am none the wiser, Shayon Harrison hasn’t featured so far this season because of injury so I would expect he’d be playing against Leicester. Meanwhile, 17 year olds TJ Eyoma and Tashan Oakley-Boothe are away with England’s under 17 squad at the World Cup and our unavailable for tomorrows game.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Austin, Marsh, C.Maghoma, Dinzeyi, Bennetts, Amos, Duncan, Tracey, Pritchard(c), S.Shashoua, Sterling.
My score prediction: 2-1 to Spurs.
One to watch: Leicester’s tenacious midfielder Hamza Choudhury, I was really impressed with him during the reverse fixture at the Lane last season where Leicester won 4-1.
