Alex Inglethorpe says our Under-18s can't wait for a first FA Youth Cup tie at the Lane in almost three years tonight (Tuesday January 8, 7pm).

Alex Inglethorpe says our Under-18s can't wait for a first FA Youth Cup tie at the Lane in almost three years tonight (Tuesday January 8, 7pm).

The lads take on Chester City in the fourth round of the competition - the first time the Academy team has played at the stadium since April 2005 and a semi-final against Ipswich Town.

In flying form at the moment - just one defeat in 11 and five-successive wins - the lads have a point to prove against the Blues after losing to the same side in the third round at the Deva Stadium last season.

So it's all to play for. Coach Alex said: "A lot of the lads haven't played at White Hart Lane so to have a cup-tie at home is something everyone is looking forward to, plus it's the chance of putting matters right from last season.

"I don't know if it's about revenge but we certainly want to beat them. We feel that we didn't give a true representation of what we're all about last season but you have to give credit to Chester, they didn't allow us to get into our rhythm, got in our faces from the first minute and deserved to go through on the night. We can't complain because we didn't perform.

"We want to put that right. We're determined to play as well as we have done all season. We certainly go into the game on the back of a strong season so far and if we manage to play as we can, hopefully we'll put the performance in and get the right result."
