"There's no room for complacency" says Larry McAvoy

Young Lions head to Cambridge United in the FA Youth Cup tonight

Millwall's youngsters head to Cambridge United for tonight's FA Youth Cup Second Round tie with the incentive of a home tie against AFC Bournemouth for the victors.

Chris Perry and Larry McAvoy's cubs warmed up for this evening's match at the Cambs Glass Stadium with an impressive 2-0 win at Bristol City U18s on Saturday thanks to a brace either side of half-time from Noel Leighton.

Striker Noel was also on target as the young Lions swept aside Worthing U18s 6-0 in the First Round of the FA Youth Cup eight days ago in a game that also saw Mason Saunders-Henry (2), Tanto Olaofe (2) and Matt Day get on the scoresheet.

Now joint bosses Chris and Larry are looking to keep the momentum going with a seventh successive victory this evening.

"We are all geared for the game," Larry told "We are under no illusions, this will be a tougher game than Worthing. Cambridge will be very confident because they are going into tonight's tie on the back of a good win over Luton at the weekend.

"We have done our analysis on them and the boys are prepared. They know that there can be no room for complacency. This competition has already produced a number of upsets and last night Stevenage beat Charlton, who are top of the table at the moment. We don't want to be feeling sick waking up tomorrow morning at a missed opportunity.

"From my point of view it's going to be nice going back to a club where I used to play, but the most important thing is making sure that we give a good account of ourselves, get a win and get into the next round."

Millwall's travelling squad: Sandford, Wright, Queely, McNamara, Tiensia, Wicks, Green, J.White, L.White, Strachan, Day, Campbell-Mhlope, Hanson, Neary, Debrah, Leighton, Saunders-Henry, Olaofe, Ebuzoeme.

Tonight's game kicks-off at 7pm with admission priced at £5 adults and £1 U18s.
