Spurs’ Under 18 side return to league action this Saturday when they host West Ham United at Hotspur Way (the game starts at 11:00am). Head coach Stuart Lewis saw his side win their first competitive match of the new season in their last league match, which was against Reading, earlier this month. Spurs most recently lost 3-1 to Leeds United in the Premier League Cup, last Saturday. Last season Spurs won their opening match against West Ham 4-1, before then recording a 1-1 draw at Hotspur Way later in the season. West Ham have picked up six points from their opening four league games of this season, while Spurs have picked up three points from their opening four league games. Always a tough game, Spurs versus West Ham at this level has been a memorable fixture in recent years. Spurs will be hoping to record their second competitive win of the season tomorrow, but with players like Sonny Perkins (West Ham’s top scorer at this level this season), Michael Forbes and Gideon Kadua, it will be a tough game. I shall be reporting on tomorrow’s game, and my match report will be out late tomorrow. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the game.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Hayton, Torraj, Dorrington, Andiyapan, Linton, Cassanova (c), Haysman, Bloxham, Donley, Owen, Williams.
Subs from: Krasniqi, McKnight, Chaplin, Kyerematen, Heaps.
Injured/unavailable: Roshaun Mathurin.
Doubtful: Jordan Hackett.
Previous meeting: 1-1.
My score prediction: Spurs 3-2.
My one to watch: Sonny Perkins. West Ham’s top scorer in the league this season – Sonny Perkins has been involved in five goals from four appearances (four goals and one assist).
