Our reserves will travel to France for a friendly against RC Lens on Tuesday, November 14.

The match will take place at Lens' training ground, kicking-off at 3pm French time (2pm UK).

Development coach Clive Allen sees it as an ideal game with the possibility of his development squad being called into the first team squad on European nights when seven substitutes are allowed.

"A friendly of this nature will be a huge benefit to the lads if any of them are called up to the senior squad, especially for a UEFA Cup match, as Charlie Lee and Phil Ifil have already this season," said Clive. "It will be a great experience for them in terms of their footballing development and education. They are all looking forward to it."
