Peterborough United host Tottenham Hotspur U21s in the EFL Trophy at the Weston Homes Stadium (October 31, 7pm).

Posh know that a win would take them to six points and onto the brink of qualification due to their opening round win over Cambridge.

Tottenham began their campaign with a comprehensive 5-0 win away at Colchester.

Posh are expected to field a much-changed side from the victory at Blackpool and will be without the cup-tied Jacob Wakeling but fans could see Malik Mothersille for the first time.

LIVE: Posh vs Spurs U21

Talley....

What a terrible error to have the ball under control in the box and under no pressure passes straight to Donely in the box, to his credit he makes a decent save from his shot.

Right onto the head of an unmarked Phillips, heads towards the corner, Talley gets there but pushes it out into the danger area, lucky the grey shirt right in front of him could not control cleanly.

Spurs corner as Burrows charges down a shot.

Looks like Poku has replaced Ajiboye at wing back

Ajiboye on for Poku

Right on the whistle, Abbott out of nothing fires a arrowing shot just wide of the left-hand post 30 yards out.

Keeley gets away with one, he comes well out of his box to try and deal with a ball but Mothersille gets there first and as he tries to chip over the keeper, it hits the keeper’s arm, clearly. Ref doesn’t seem to think so though.

Fernandez has transformed himself into a flying winger.

Maraudes down the right again, just run off it this time and Spurs break but Crichlow tidies up the danger well and prevents Dorrington getting a shot away.
