Spurs Under 23’s versus Leicester City: (match preview)

Spurs’ Under 23 side will be looking to bounce back after losing 7-1 to Liverpool on Saturday, in the Premier League 2. Spurs’ next Premier League 2 game is on Friday, when they face Leicester City at Stevenage’s Lamex Stadium (the game starts at 19:00pm). Spurs have not won a competitive game this year, but they did win 4-1 away to Leicester City in the reverse fixture last year. Leicester are in good form of late and are unbeaten in their last six competitive games. They are two points and two places behind Spurs in the league, and once again they will try and make this a difficult game for Spurs. Spurs had a very difficult game against a talented Liverpool side, in their last game. However, Malachi Fagan-Walcott and Matthew Craig will return from suspension for the game on Friday, and could possibly start the match. Leicester players Tawanda Maswanhise and Shane Flynn are two players that I have been impressed with in the past, and they are players who Spurs will have to watch. I’ll be at the Lamex Stadium on Friday, for Spurs’ second last home league game of the season, and I’d like to wish the team all the very best of luck for the game.

My predicted lineup: Lo-Tutala, Cesay, Fagan-Walcott, Omole, Lusala, Matthew Craig, Bowden (c), Bennett, Devine, Mundle, Robson. 

Subs from: Oluwayemi, Paskotši, Muir, Santiago, Donley. 

Injured/unavailable: N/A.

Doubtful: N/A.

Previous meeting: Spurs 4-1.

My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.

My one to watch: Tawanda Maswanhise. The skilful Leicester City forward impressed during the reverse fixture between Spurs and Leicester, earlier in the season. The 19 year old scored a fine goal in the reverse fixture to give Leicester the lead in that game, and he was Leicester’s best player during the match, in my opinion. He has scored eight Premier League 2 goals and provided one assist, from 20 appearances this season.
