Spurs under 23’s versus Leicester City: (match preview)

Spurs’ under 23 side return to Premier League 2 action tomorrow night (the game starts at 19:00pm) when they play Leicester City at their new and extremely impressive training ground in Seagrave. Leicester City have picked up 17 points from 19 league games this season, and they currently sit in 11th place in the league table, only just avoiding the relegation zone because of goal difference. Tomorrow’s opponents haven’t been on a great run of form of late, and their last league win came back in January. Wayne Burnett’s Spurs side are currently in third place in the league, just four points behind second place Blackburn Rovers. However, in the reverse fixture with Leicester last year Spurs lost 5-1 at Hotspur Way, but Spurs’ form since the start of the year has been really good. Spurs will be without George Marsh for tomorrow’s game as he is suspended after being shown a red card in their last game, while I would be surprised if Dane Scarlett and Alfie Devine play tomorrow, as Spurs’ under 18’s have an FA Youth Cup game against West Brom on Tuesday. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for tomorrow’s game.

My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Kurylowicz, Markanday, Lavinier, Omole, Cirkin, Bowden (c), Pedder, Bennett, Thorpe, Mukendi, Etete.

Subs from: Maguire, Skinner, Davies, Asante.

Injured/unavailable: George Marsh (suspended).

Doubtful: N/A.

Previous meeting: Spurs 1-5.

My score prediction: Spurs 3-1.

My one to watch: Irishman Shane Flynn is able to play as a left-winger and as a left-back, and the 19 year old is really good at getting up and down the flank. Flynn is also a skilful player with good pace, and he has already been on the bench for the Leicester City first team this season.
