Spurs Under 18’s versus Wolverhampton Wanderers: (match preview)

Spurs’ Under 18 side will face Wolverhampton Wanderers, at Molineux, on Saturday afternoon (the game starts at 13:00pm), in what is an important FA Youth Cup fifth round tie. Head coach Stuart Lewis will be hoping that his Spurs side can win tomorrows match, and if they do manage to win what will be a very challenging and competitive game, then they will face Brighton & Hove Albion, at home in the quarter-finals of the competition. Wolves are in sixth place in the Under 18 Premier League North, and have picked up 20 points from 11 league games so far this season. Wolves also have the fourth best home form in the league, with 14 points from seven league matches this season. Wolves beat Salford City and Crystal Palace in the previous rounds of the competition, this season, to get to the fifth round stage of the competition. This will be a very difficult game for Spurs at Molineux, on Saturday. However, if they put in a similar performance to the one which saw them win 6-1 against West Brom in the last round, then they have a good chance of reaching the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup. I will be at Molineux on Saturday, and my match report will be out later on tomorrow. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the game.

My predicted lineup: Gunter, Bryan-Waugh, Dorrington, Sayers, Hackett-Valton, Kyerematen, Devine (c), McKnight, Donley, Bloxham, Williams.

Subs from: Maguire, Andiyapan, Linton, Willhoft-King, Heaps, Owen, Torraj.

Injured/unavailable: N/A.

Doubtful: N/A.

Previous meeting: Spurs 2-1.

My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.

My one to watch: Tyler Roberts. The Wolves forward has scored five league goals from eight appearances so far this season, and he has also registered three assists.
