Our development squad, unbeaten in the league all season, make the short trip to take on Arsenal at Borehamwood this evening (Monday).
As a preview to the action, we highlight all you need to know ahead of kick-off...
Where and when
Borehamwood’s Meadow Park is home for Arsenal’s development squad, kick-off tonight is 7pm.
As the only side yet to taste defeat in the league campaign, we are in good form. The impressive run was extended to 16 games last time out when fellow title-chasers Leicester City clinched two late goals to seal a draw and snatch maximum points away from the Blues.
Arsenal currently occupy fifth place, winning six of their 16 games. However, the Gunners’ last win came in early December when they saw off Blackburn Rovers at home. More recently, the north Londoners were on the end of defeat at Liverpool and took a point away from Everton and Derby respectively. Arsenal's Folarin Balogun is currently the third top goalscorer in PL2, finding the net seven times in total.
We welcomed Arsenal to Aldershot back in October and convincingly won 3-1 that night. Charlie Brown, now on loan in Belgium, secured a brace either side of a fine Clinton Mola strike. The team that night was as follows:
Jamie Cumming; Tariq Lamptey (Marcel Lavinier 76), Dynel Simeu, Jack Wakely, Ian Maatsen; Billy Gilmour (c), Clinton Mola; Thierno Ballo (Marcel Lewis 66), George McEachran, Henry Lawrence, Charlie Brown (Armando Broja 83)
