PREVIEW: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

3 September 2018

Reds are back in Checkatrade Trophy action for the first time this season as we host Tottenham Hotspur Under-21s at the Broadfield Stadium. Jimmy Smith and Filipe Morais will continue to take charge of the team while the search for Harry Kewell’s replacement continues.

Spurs  have had a difficult to start to their Premier League 2 campaign, drawing two and losing two of their opening four games, including a 2-1 loss to Arsenal in their last match on Friday night.

ONE TO WATCH

One player who could potentially start for Spurs tomorrow is midfielder Shayon Harrison who is a pacey left footed striker. He has been a regular starter in thePremier League 2 and was a prominent figure in Spurs' UEFA Youth League campaigns. 

CHECKATRADE HISTORY

This is Tottenham’s second season as an invited academy club in the Checkatrade Trophy, and they will be hoping to go one better than last season where they finished bottom of their group.

That group consisted of Luton Town, who they lost to on penalties after a 2-2 draw; AFC Wimbledon who they lost to 4-3; and Barnet who beat them 2-1.

Crawley also finished bottom of their group, losing all three games to Portsmouth, Charlton and Fulham U21s.

REFEREE WATCH

Sussex official Tim Robinson will referee tomorrow’s clash, which will be his fourth Checkatrade Trophy match involving the Reds.

Two years ago he took charge of our 1-0 win over Colchester United in August 2016, with his previous Reds appointments a 3-1 defeat in the same competition at Portsmouth last season, a 3-0 loss at home to Southend, a 2-0 League Two win over Newport County and a 2-1 loss to Port Vale in December 2014.
