WHAT HAPPENED

Our under-23s fought back from two goals down in the first half, only to be ultimately beaten by Tottenham in a hotly-contested north London derby. 

The hosts made good use of their early dominance, scoring twice in quick succession - first through Shayon Harrison after nine minutes, before Samuel Shashoua added a second moments later.

Looking to quickly get back into the tie, Steve Gatting’s side came close through Charlie Gilmour, who struck the woodwork, before John-Jules pulled a goal back with an effort from long range.

Shortly before the half-hour mark we drew level from the penalty spot through Gilmour after the referee deemed that Japhet Tanganga had handled the ball.

With half-time nearing, the hosts saw a penalty claim dismissed after Harrison went down in a scramble for the ball, but their claims were waved away.

Spurs regained their lead after the interval from the spot through Marcus Edwards, after Joseph Olowu tripped substitute Kazaiah Sterling and we could find no way back this time.

WHAT IT MEANS

Defeat means that we remain in third place in the Premier League 2 table, missing out on the opportunity to leapfrog Everton and close the three-point gap between ourselves and league leaders Liverpool.

WHAT’S NEXT

We travel to 10th-placed Chelsea, who are without a win in six games, having drawn 0-0 with West Ham in their previous fixture. We beat the Blues 4-1 the last time we faced them, with Danny Welbeck, Donyell Malen and Reiss Nelson getting on the scoresheet.
