Under-23 preview: Tottenham Hotspur (G) – Blog

The Derby County Under-23s will be looking to see the 2021/22 season on a high when they host Tottenham Hotspur at Pride Park Stadium on Monday in the final home game of the campaign.

The Under-23s will host Spurs at the Rams home ground (kick-off 7 p.m.) and dcfc.co.uk has gathered all the key information you will need to know ahead of the game.

Team news…

Striker Jack Stretton and midfielder Connor Dixon were sent off in the first half of the 2-1 Under-23 defeat at Leicester City on Good Friday with injuries and are having their fitness assessed.

Goalkeeper Harrison Foulkes picked up a hip problem early in the 0-0 draw with Leicester City at Moor Farm Training Ground last month and is set to miss once again.

Defender Max Bardell (hamstring) is out for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery.

The season so far…

Derby Under-23s saw their relegation to Premier League 2 – Division 2 confirmed with a 2-1 defeat at Leicester City on Easter Friday.

Pat Lyons’ side have fought hard against the drop all season but, with several Under-23 players breaking into the first team during the season, it has been difficult to compete because of a young and threadbare team.

Derby have four wins, three draws and 16 losses in 23 outings this season, taking them a combined 15 points bottom of the table.

Tottenham are seventh in the table this season with nine wins, six draws and eight losses and won 3-1 against the Rams earlier in the season.

Derby found themselves two goals down in the opening 20 minutes of the game as Nile John and Dilan Markanday struck in for Spurs.

Luke Plange marked his first start for the Derby Under-23s with a goal before the half-hour mark to put the Rams back in contention.

As Derby looked to equalize, with Plange coming closest, Alfie Devine struck just over ten minutes from time to ensure it was the hosts who took all three points.


Rams TV are unable to broadcast the match live due to a Premier League game taking place on Monday evening.

Full summaries of the Premier League 2 – Division 1 match will appear online at dcfc.co.uk following the game.
