Our Under-18s made it seven wins in eight games with a 4-0 victory at Reading on Saturday.

Harry Kane celebrated his call-up to the first-team squad for Tuesday's Carling Cup tie against Everton - he was an unused substitute - with the opener after 15 minutes.

Paul Jose Mpoku (pictured) set up that goal and scored the next two to put the lads in the driving seat at 3-0 up at half-time.

Ryan Fredericks completed the scoring in the second half.

The win kept the lads on the tail of Premier Academy League Group B leaders Leicester, who made it nine wins and a draw in 10 matches by beating Bristol City.

Coach Alex Inglethorpe reported: "We played very well in the first half and that's been the story of the season so far.

"This time we were 3-0 up at half-time. Reading were very combative in the early stages of the game and we had to fight hard but we managed to do that.

"The first goal was the pick of the goals. It was a good move that ended with Paul Jose Mpoku cutting in from the left and passing for Harry Kane to finish first-time.

"It only took five minutes to make it 2-0 when Ryan Fredericks crossed from the right and Paul Jose tapped in at the far post.

"We made it 3-0 just before half-time when we broke down the left and Paul Jose cut inside and finished with his right foot.

"The second half was a bit scrappy, Reading had a man sent off - somewhat harshly - and the lads lost a little focus.

"Nevertheless, we made it 4-0 with about 10 minutes left with another good goal, Ryan Fredericks cut inside from the right onto his left foot and curled into the top corner from 20 yards."

Spurs U18s: Butler; Smith (Waller-Lassen, 65), Byrne, Butcher (Carroll, 60), Cox; Fredericks, Nicholson, Parrett (Oyenuga, 55), Bostock, Mpoku; Kane. Unused subs: Ranieri, McBride.
