U18s PREVIEW: FULHAM

24 April 2015

Two games left of youngsters' season

NORWICH City Under-18s play the final home match of their 2014-15 campaign on Saturday when they host Fulham at Colney Training Centre (12pm).

Jerry Gill's side currently sit in seventh place in the Group 3 play-off section of the Barclays Under-18s Premier League, having ended the regular season strongly.

Meanwhile, Fulham are two points ahead of the Canaries in the standings, with both teams having one remaining fixture after this weekend's clash.

The Cottagers hold the upper hand from previous meetings, having secured a 2-1 victory at Colney back in September.

City will be without Aston Oxborough for the contest, after the goalkeeper suffered an injury in last weekend's 4-2 defeat at Blackburn Rovers.

However, they are set to be boosted by the return of several players who have been involved at higher age levels due to the recent postponement of Monday's proposed Under-21s match against Chelsea.
