Posh Under 18s v Villa: Match Preview

8 January 2013

The Posh under 18s host Aston Villa under 18s at London Road on Tuesday evening.

The Peterborough United under 18s entertain Aston Villa under 18s in the third round of the FA Youth Cup at London Road on Tuesday evening (7pm).

Gavin Strachan's men have prepared well for the fixture and there is a decent crowd expected for the cup-tie with tickets on sale at www.theposhtickets.com, via the 24-hour hotline 0844 847 1934 and at the Box Office.

Tickets are priced at £3 for adults and £1 for concessions in advance with the price rising to £5 for adults and £2 for concessions on the evening of the game.

Strachan said: 'The lads have trained well. We know we are up against a good side in Aston Villa. I have seen them play myself and they have about 30 scholars to choose from in terms of their selection, but we have some good players too.

'A lot of our lads have experienced playing stadium football at London Road and that is a big help. Jaanai Gordon played for the first team against Norwich City, Regan Carthey and Michael Richens have been in and around the first team, while Charlie Coulson and Jermaine Anderson have had a taste of it too.

'Hopefully, it will be a decent turn out from the supporters. I am sure it will be a good game of football,' Strachan said.
