Yet to beat West Brom in their two competitive games against them this season at this level, Spurs’ under 18 side recently lost 5-0 to West Brom in the FA Youth Cup. Saturday mornings game (it starts at 11:30am at West Brom’s training ground) gives Matt Taylor’s side a chance to beat West Brom before the end of the season. West Brom are seven points behind Spurs in the league table having played two games more than them, while Spurs sit in fifth place in the table. An encouraging statistic for Spurs is that West Brom have only picked up eight league points from 11 home league fixtures this season. However, this will be a tough game for Spurs, especially as they have not beaten West Brom in a competitive game this season, but I would like to wish the team all the very best of luck for the game. With the under 23 side playing Manchester City on Friday night, it will be interesting to see what the team is to face West Brom on Saturday.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Lo-Tutala (c), Muir, Dorrington, Paskotsi, Hackett, Michael Craig, Matthew Craig, Mathurin, Mundle, Santiago, Donley.
Subs from: Maguire, Kyezu, Torraj, Haysman.
Injured/unavailable: Dane Scarlett.
Previous meeting: Spurs 0-5.
My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.
My one to watch: Reyes Cleary, who has scored an impressive seven goals from 14 Premier League South appearances this season.
