Paul Hardyman’s Under-18s return to action in the U18 Premier League, as they travel to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday morning.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Saints
U18 Premier League
Tottenham Hotspur Training Centre
Saturday 21st November, 11:30am GMT
Following a dramatic 3-3 draw with Aston Villa last time out, Saints travel to Spurs looking to build up some moment in the U18 Premier League.
Goals from Kazeem Olaigbe, Ramello Mitchell and Sam Bellis had looked to set the side on their way to a comfortable win at Villa, before late strikes from Hayden Lindley and Arjan Raikhy in injury time dealt Saints a cruel blow.
Spurs on the other hand come into Saturday’s game on the back off a comfortable 2-0 win at Norwich City before the break.
Goals from Tarrelle Whittaker and Kallum Xzeiba Tracey Cesay meant Saturday’s hosts have just one defeat from their opening seven games.
Saints were on the wrong side of a heavy defeat the last time these two sides met back in February.
In what was Saints’ last away day of the 2019-20 season before the early cancellations, Spurs ran out 6-1 winners at the Tottenham Hotspur Training Ground.
Goals from Nile John, Yago Alonso, J’Neil Bennett and a double from skipper Kion Etete sealed a comfortable result for the hosts.
Lucas Defise was on the scoresheet for the visitors.
