Spurs’ Under 21 side will face League One side Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday evening at Adams Park (the game starts at 19:00pm), in their first group-stage match of the 2022/23 Papa Johns Trophy. Wayne Burnett’s Spurs side will be looking to record their first competitive win of the new season, later today. However, that won’t be easy, as Wycombe are a very good League One side. Spurs will be hoping to get a good result in Buckinghamshire in their opening group match, as they are in a difficult group which also includes Peterborough United and Stevenage. Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe Wanderers side includes former Norwich City Academy player Anis Mehmeti, who has started the season really well. Also, it will be interesting to see if creative forward/midfielder and Republic of Ireland international Daryl Horgan plays this evening. This will be a very difficult game for Spurs, but it will also be a great experience for Wayne Burnett’s side. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the match.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Maguire, Craig, Muir, Fagan-Walcott, Ashcroft, White, John (c), Mundle, Donley, Mathurin, Santiago.
Subs from: Hayton, Cesay, Dorrington, Abbott, McKnight, Robson, Williams.
Doubtful: Jamie Bowden, Alfie Devine, Charlie Sayers.
Previous meeting: N/A.
My score prediction: 2-2.
My one to watch: Daryl Horgan (30). The Republic of Ireland international can play in midfield and out wide on the flanks. He is a creative and experienced player, and one that the Spurs players will have to watch closely throughout the match.
