UNDER-21S IN NORTH-WEST ACTION

Chelsea's Under-21 side aim to make it four wins out of four since the second phase of the league season began at the start of the year, when they play away against Blackburn Under-21s on Monday evening.

Dermot Drummy's side are currently top of Group One of the Barclays U21 Premier League, which would earn a place in the play-offs at the end of the season if maintained. Tonight's opponents have yet to win in two their outings since Christmas.

Kick-off is 7pm. The venue is Leigh Sports Village, Sale Way, Leigh, WN7 4JY.
