Spurs Under 18’s versus Crystal Palace: (match preview)

Spurs’ Under 18 side will be looking to return to winning ways when they travel south of the river to face Crystal Palace in the Premier League South, on Saturday morning (the game starts at 11:00am). Spurs have lost their last two competitive games at this level, and they lost 4-0 away to Fulham in the Premier League Cup last Saturday. Tomorrow’s game at Crystal Palace’s training ground will be another difficult one, as Crystal Palace finished as runners up in the Premier League South last season, although Spurs did win 5-1 away to them in the league during that season. This will be an interesting game, but unfortunately I will be unable to watch it, as I’ll be at Hotspur Way watching the Under 23 side face Manchester City. I would however, like to wish Stuart Lewis’ side all the very best of luck for the match.

My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Gunter, Bryan-Waugh, Dorrington, Sayers, Hackett, Cassanova (c), Kyerematen, McKnight, Davies, Torraj, Williams.

Subs from: Hayton, Linton, Haysman, Heaps, Bloxham.

Injured/unavailable: N/A.

Doubtful: N/A.

Previous meeting: Spurs 0-3. 

My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.

My one to watch: Victor Akinwale. The England Under 18 international has scored ten league goals and provided one assist for Crystal Palace’s Under 18 side so far this season, from nine appearances.
