Accrington Stanley youth travel to Ilkeston tomorrow evening for their FA Youth Cup Second Round tie, with hosting Premier League outfit West Ham United the reward for the victors.
Stanley defeated Carlisle United in the previous round by three goals to one, and Ilkeston knocked out Northampton Town after extra-time.
Academy Manager Keith Brown is optimistic of progressing to the third round, he said; “We will prepare the exact same as we do for every game.
“We are all looking forward to it, the league and the cup are both important for us.
“It is important for these players to play against teams that they probably won’t play against in the domestic league, so it is a great experience and one I’m sure we will go and enjoy.”
The game will be played at the New Manor Ground, Ilkeston, kick-off 19:45.
