Match preview | Imps U18 v Walsall U18

19 November 2023

City's U18s will be looking to secure progression to the third round of the FA Youth Cup when hosting Walsall U18 at the LNER Stadium on Monday 20 November (7PM KO).

After an impressive 3-0 win against Notts County at Meadow Lane in the first round, the young Imps will be looking to build on that performance to get past a young Saddlers side who beat Chasetown 6-2 to get to this stage.

This will be the young Imps' first return to the LNER Stadium since winning the U17 Floodlit Cup last season.

All the key information ahead of the encounter can be found in this match preview.
