PREVIEW: Bolton U-18s v Port Vale U-18s - FA Youth Cup.

Wanderers' youth team will be hoping to show the senior men how it's done when they welcome Port Vale to the Reebok tonight in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup.

Peter Farrell's side will be pinning their hopes on England youth striker Temitope Obadeyi - who scored in the Whites' 2-0 victory over West Ham in the previous round.

Port Vale will include former Wanderers scholars Simon Richman and Paul Dixon in midfield, but Farrell sees it as the perfect opportunity for his charges to go on a cup run.

"We can't be over-confident, but it's a good chance for the lads to go on a run and put themselves in the spotlight," said former Bury midfielder Farrell.

"If people like Obadeyi, Kevin Wolze and Danny Ward are firing, we will have a very good chance of winning. The lads have plenty of confidence from beating three-times winners West Ham at Upton Park, and now they are excited to play at the Reebok.

"We shouldn't suffer too much with nerves because five or six of the lads are internationals and have played at big stadiums before, and the team is having a good season anyway.

"The club has never been past the quarter-final stage in this competition - so it would be great to go on a run this year.

"You tend to get some of the first-team lads along supporting them, and the first-team coaches will be monitoring how they all play, so it is a big game for the lads."

Farrell's aim is to see some of the youngsters make the step up to the first-team squad, and he reckons a few of his protegès have the ability to make their mark.
