Chris Ramsey insists our Under-21 squad will be determined to show what they can do against Manchester United tonight.

Under-21s relishing United clash

We meet the Reds at Altrincham’s Moss Rose stadium for a 7pm kick-off in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League.

The lads were rocked in their opening game at Newcastle on August 18. They were 2-0 down inside five minutes and 5-1 down at half-time before dominating the second half and eventually losing 6-4.

Assistant Technical Co-Ordinator Chris expects a reaction tonight.

“We’d expect them to be hurt by that result because whenever you go out to play a match, you want to win,” he said.

“If it’s a loss, or a win, players will react in one way or another. We certainly don’t want to find ourselves 5-1 down at half-time and having to climb that mountain again.”

Darren Fletcher played as United opened their campaign with a 1-0 win at Stoke in Group Two of the new league.

“They always do things right and we know they will have players who are hungry and want to do it the United way,” added Chris.

“We will go there and try our best to do it the Tottenham way. The players will give their all and will try to play in a fashion that suits the way we are trying to develop. It will be a big night for a lot of the players.”
