City kids facing the Gunners

Two extremely inexperienced sides are likely to be in action at Carrow Road this evening when Norwich City take on Arsenal in their latest Barclays Premiership Reserve League encounter.

Two extremely inexperienced sides are likely to be in action at Carrow Road this evening when Norwich City take on Arsenal in their latest Barclays Premiership Reserve League encounter.

With both clubs hit by a mixture of injuries, fixture congestion and international call-ups the average age of both sets of players is likely to be well under 20.

Keith Webb won't have any first-team players to call upon tonight ahead of tomorrow's trip to Championship leaders Reading and will almost certainly have to include a number of emergency recruits from Easton College.

That sort of selection headache sums up a frustrating campaign for City's reserve coach, whose side are currently rooted to the foot of the table after winning just two of their opening 15 fixtures, while scoring a mere five goals.
