Our Under-18s make the short trip to Stevenage in the third round of the FA Youth Cup tonight.

We kick-off the third round tie at the Lamex Stadium at 7pm.

Stevenage beat Leyton Orient in the second round under the watchful eye of our Under-18s coach Alex Inglethorpe.

"It will be a tough game and we'll show them the respect they deserve," said Alex.

"They are very well organised and work hard and it's a cup-tie, so anything could happen.

"We're all keen to get through because it gives the players a chance to play under that pressure.

"I think it's important though that the players aren't just judged by what they do in the FA Youth Cup.

"You only have to look at the team that lost to Port Vale a couple of years ago and it included the likes of Steven Caulker, Jake Livermore, Danny Rose, Dean Parrett, Ryan Mason and Andros Townsend.

"They've all gone on to play for the first team.

"It's always a healthy experience for them but it's a one-off competition and the most important thing is that they develop into players, hopefully, for Tottenham Hotspur."
