The reward for victory at Kenilworth Road will be a quarter-final tie at home to either Southampton or Fulham, with those two sides going head to head on Tuesday night.

North End progressed to this stage of the competition thanks to an emphatic 6-1 victory over Rotherham United in the third round, before a late Kian Best winner on the road against Gillingham set up a tie against Luton Town.

For the Hatters, they enjoyed a thumping win of their own in the third round, coming out 6-0 winners against Birmingham City, while it was a 3-1 win over Queens Park Rangers which saw them through to Monday night’s clash.

Kaedyn Previews FA Youth Cup Tie Against Luton Town

5 February 2023

Luton Town are having a quite remarkable league campaign so far, currently sitting top of the Youth Alliance South East Conference, 15 points ahead of second-placed Gillingham, who North End beat in the previous round.

Goals haven’t been hard to come by, either, having netted 63 in their 14 league matches, losing just one game in that run.

As far as PNE are concerned, they’ll be looking to improve on recent form, having not registered a victory in the league since the turn of the year, but they’ll head to Kenilworth Road confident they can come out on top.

They did just that in May 2022 in the Youth Alliance Cup final, earning a 4-1 victory to lift the trophy in Bedfordshire, but it will be a different challenge this time around.
