January signing and recent first-team debutant Chris Gunter has been named in the squad for tonight’s first reserve game of 2008 at home to Chelsea.

The 18-year-old Welsh full-back played in last week’s FA Cup Third Round replay win over Reading but is cup-tied for tomorrow night's Carling Cup semi-final second leg against Arsenal.

New Academy goalkeeper Oscar Jansson also makes the squad after his debut for the Under-18s against Bristol City at the weekend.

He is joined by a host of our FA Youth Cup stars, including fourth round penalty hero David Hutton.

Development coach Clive Allen said: "It's been a while since our last fixture, we've had a couple of weeks' good training and I sense the lads are determined to get going again.

"We've had some good games against Chelsea and this is another important one, it's basically the start of the second half of the season for us."

The full squad is as follows: Forecast, Jansson, Gunter, Dervite, Martin, Hughton, Routledge, Livermore, Rose, Hutton, Pekhart, Dawkins, Riley, C Butcher, Hutchins, Townsend, Obika.

The match kicks off at 7pm at Leyton Orient FC.
