Spurs XI friendly tonight

Clive Allen expects a real test for his Spurs XI side when they take on Crawley Town at the Broadfield Stadium tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

The Reserve group got their pre-season campaign off to a winning start with a 2-1 win over Blue Square South side St Albans City last week, but now step up a level against a tough Conference outfit.

But coach Clive believes his squad are getting fitter every day as they build up their summer preparations ahead of the new season.

He said: "The intention has been for the quality of opposition to be strong and gradually the intensity of the friendlies will undoubtedly build up.

"I know about Crawley. They're a good Conference side and their manager Steve Evans will definitely have them motivated.

"The intensity of training has picked up with the speed and agility work getting sharper. It will be a progression as we go through pre-season.

"The tempo of this game will be a little bit higher, and with the boys getting fitter and fitter, I'll be looking for them to run the game out well."

Tonight's Spurs XI squad:
L Butcher, Dalton, Smith, Mtandari, Hughton, Berchiche, Dervite, C Butcher, Daniels, Hutchins, D Hutton, Fraser-Allen, Mason, Barcham, Olsen, Obika
