Colchester United vs Tottenham: Live Result Updates (0-3) Wed, 21 Jul 2021 20:00:00 +0100-Follow all the action right here as Tottenham take on League Two side Colchester United in their second pre-season friendly of the summer.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of Tottenham's second pre-season friendly of the summer as they travel to Colchester United.
In action on Saturday as they drew 1-1 away at Leyton Orient, the Lilywhites will once again take on League Two opposition as Nuno Espirito Santo's pre-season preparations take another step up.
The new head coach is once again expected to field a blend of youth and experience in his Spurs starting XI as he takes another look at his players ahead of next month's Premier League opener against Man City.
Dane Scarlett, who scored at the weekend, could be handed another start, with fellow academy ace Nile John also making a case for a spot in the team once again after such a good showing in east London.
Players such as Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon and Ryan Sessegnon could all come into the side after missing out completely at the weekend.
Our Tottenham correspondents Alasdair Gold and Rob Guest are covering the match with all the action from inside the stadium and reaction from the supporters and media.
Scroll down for all of our latest updates from the JobServe Community Stadium.
Tottenham run out 3-0 winners at Colchester United.

The Dutchman slices an effort off target after running towards the box.

Nile John shows some great feet to find some space and his low shot is deflected wide.

Really good run from Steven Bergwijn and he wants a penalty after he is clipped in the box.
It's not given though.

Eric Dier heads wide from a Son corner
Chance for Spurs as Son's free-kick is scrambled across the face of the goal and the resulting corner is sent over the bar.
We're now underway at the JobServe Community Stadium.
It's a stronger Spurs line-up tonight than on Saturday with the return of Son Heung-min and Oliver Skipp to the pitch.Dane Scarlett and Nile John will no doubt feel unfortunate to drop to the bench after their bright performances at Orient but this is all about getting the first team players their fitness at the moment, with the academy players having come back a week or so before.For those who played on Saturday, such as Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura, Nuno Espirito Santo will want to see a slight step up in performance to match their increasing fitness.Spurs have plenty of attacking power, not least with the return of Son to the fold.For Skipp, he now has the chance to impress the new boss ahead of what is expected to be a big season for him.Japhet Tanganga, on the bench, tonight will be hoping to do the same when he gets on.There are still plenty of players missing from action with Sergio Reguilon, Matt Doherty, Tanguy Ndombele and Ryan Sessegnon yet to get on the pitch for a game, with Joe Hart also sitting out this one.Spurs have bad memories of the JobServe Community Stadium after their Carabao Cup defeat here two seasons ago, which felt like the beginning of the end of the Mauricio Pochettino era.
Tanganga and Troy Parrott, also on the bench tonight, made their debut that night for the first team and they will be hoping to right that wrong somewhat, even though this is just a friendly.
We're now just under five minutes away from kick-off here at the JobServe Community Stadium.
