Spurs under 23’s versus Derby County: (match preview)

Spurs under 23’s versus Derby County:


The last time our under 23’s won on the road was against this evenings opposition, Derby county back in August of 2016. I will be making the trip to the East Midlands to report on this evenings game, a game in which Wayne Burnett’s side will be looking to build on their impressive 3-2 victory over rivals Arsenal on Monday. They come up against Darren Wassall’s young Derby team at the impressive pride park Stadium, Derby have won 3 of their last 4 games including an impressive 2-0 win over league leaders Liverpool in their last home match in the PL2. There’s always the possibility that Derby could field some senior players for this game, so a win will be a tough ask for Burnett’s side. Playing at pride park will be a brilliant experience for our youngsters, and I’ve a hopeful feeling that tonight’s game will be a very enjoyable one. COYS
