Spurs’ Under 18 side host Birmingham City at Hotspur Way on Saturday (the game starts at 12:00pm), in a Premier League South fixture. Spurs haven’t won a competitive game at this level since January, when they won 6-1 against West Brom in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup. Birmingham City won the reverse fixture in Birmingham, 3-2 back in September of last year, with Riley Owen getting both of Spurs’ goals on that day. Birmingham are in 13th place in the Premier League South, with 12 points from 19 games, and they are one place behind Spurs, although they have played three games more than them. Spurs have lost their last four games in all competitions at this level, but they will be hoping that they can win Saturdays match, and also Birmingham have only picked up five points away from home in the league this season. This should be a good game of football, and I would like to wish the team all the very best of luck for the game.
My predicted lineup: Gunter, Andiyapan, Dorrington, Sayers (c), Linton, Abbott, Kyerematen, McKnight, Donley, Bloxham, Williams.
Subs from: Maguire, Chaplin, Heaps, Hall, Torraj.
Previous meeting: Spurs 2-3.
My score prediction: Spurs 2-0.
My one to watch: Ben Beresford. The Birmingham City forward is their top scorer in the Premier League South this season, with four goals and one assist from ten appearances.
