Our Under-18s will be looking to build on their fine victory over Manchester City last week when Manchester United come to Hotspur Way on Saturday morning.

Having taken part in a joint training venture with the Red Devils earlier in the season, we saw off their challenge in the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup with a 3-1 win at White Hart Lane back in February.

Now preparing for a Barclays Under-18 Premier League encounter, Under-18s Coach Kieran McKenna says the players are determined to put on another good performance in the run-in to the end of the season.

“We always look forward to United coming down,” he said. “We have a really good relationship with their academy and we have a lot of respect for their staff and the work they do.

“We spent a week training up there in combination with them earlier in the season and then obviously we played them in the Youth Cup so it’s a game to look forward to.

“We don’t have many games left this season so the boys will want to finish strongly.”

Kick-off at the Training Centre is at 11am. Follow @SpursOfficial on Twitter to keep up to date.
