Leyton Orient’s under-18s make the trip to non-league Poole Town tonight (Tuesday) in the second round of the FA Youth Cup.

The winner at Tatnam Ground will book a lucrative tie at Premier League outfit Leicester City in the next round.

O’s youth have won 14 of their 15 games this campaign in all competitions, although drew 1-1 at Cambridge United last time out on November 5.

In the previous round of the FA Youth Cup, Orient produced a sensational display to see off local rivals Southend United 6-0.

Tristan Abrahams and Sam Dalby hit braces while Josh Koroma and Ruel Sotiriou were also on target.

It led to Alberto Cavasin included some of the under-18s in his squad at Brighton & Hove Albion last Tuesday.

Koroma started the EFL Trophy match at Falmer Stadium and fellow academy players Myles Judd and Henry Ochieng were introduced.

All three will hope to play a part this evening when Orient take on Poole Town for a 7.45pm kick-off.

For fans interested in supporting the youth, adult tickets cost £5, concessions are £3 and under-13s are £1.
