Spurs Under 18’s versus Fulham: (match preview)

Spurs’ Under 18 side face Fulham at Hotspur Way on Saturday morning (the game starts at 11am), in their latest Premier League South match. Head coach Stuart Lewis will be hoping that his side can return to winning ways, after losing their last three competitive matches. Fulham won the Premier League South last season, after picking up 56 points from 24 games. However, this season they currently sit in seventh place in the league, with 25 points from 16 matches. Spurs are ten points behind Fulham, in tenth place in the league. Fulham won 4-2 against Spurs at Motspur Park, in the league, on the opening day of this season. They also won 4-0 against Spurs in Spurs’ final group game of this seasons Under 18 Premier League Cup. During that game I thought that winger Jaylan Wildbore (formerly of Burton Albion), was impressive, as was forward Oliver Sanderson. This will be a difficult game for Spurs, who have lost their last three competitive meetings with Fulham at this level, but one in which they’ll be hoping to get a good result from. I would like to wish the Spurs team all the very best of luck for the game.

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

Subs from: Hayton, Linton, Hall, Torraj, Owen.

Injured/unavailable: N/A.

Doubtful: N/A.

Previous meeting: Spurs 0-4.

My score prediction: 2-2.

My one to watch: Jaylan Wildbore. The former Burton Albion player scored a goal and created some good chances in the Under 18 Premier League Cup meeting between the two sides last year, and he looked very confident on the ball, and he scored a really well taken goal during that game. He has scored three goals and provided three assists from 11 Premier League South appearances this season.
