Spurs U19s 2 Leicester City 0

Pat Holland was full of praise for his defence as the Under-19s beat Leicester City on Saturday.

"The back four were excellent," said Pat. "It was comfortable but it wasn't as good a performance as we produced against Newcastle."

Dean Marney opened the scoring after 15 minutes with a fine opportunist goal. He intercepted a pass and after the goalkeeper saved his initial effort, was first to the rebound to score.

Leicester then had a man sent off for a late challenge on Chris Herron and Pat suggested this 'changed the game completely'.

In control after the break, Ben Bowditch finally added the second goal after 70 minutes - steering the ball home after picking up a poor punch out from the goalkeeper.

"We were always in control without being that convincing," Pat concluded.

Spurs U19s: Burch, Kelly, Herron (Galbraith, 25), Hughes, Henry, O'Donoghue, Marney, Vedeux (Barnard, 65), Sutton, Bowditch, Thomas. Unused: Jalal, Gardner.
