WATCH LIVE: Pierrick spearheads strong U18s team v Wolves

16 January 2020

Crystal Palace Under-18s take on Wolverhampton Wanderers tonight at 19:00 in the FA Youth Cup, and you can watch how they get on live for free via Palace TV.

Manager Paddy McCarthy has named strong starting lineup, with forward Rob Street, midfielder Malachi Boateng and defender Jude Russell all having experience at Under-23 level.

But for supporters, the name which stands out most in McCarthy's XI is Brandon Pierrick, with the talented forward having featured competitively for Roy Hodgson's first-team twice in recent weeks. Called-up amidst the club's injury crisis, Pierrick was fielded against Norwich City on New Year's Day and earned a start against Derby County in the recent FA Cup clash.

Against the Canaries, Pierrick became the club's second-youngest Premier League debutant.

Elsewhere, goalscorers from the last round of the FA Youth Cup Boateng, Street and Brandon Aveiro all retain their places as McCarthy names an XI well-equipped offensively.

In addition to TQ Addy as an attacking threat on the wing, the Palace manager also has John-Kymani Gordon and Josh Ajayi as striking options from the bench.

Wolves: Young, Abbey, Estrada, Marques, Richards, Bueno, Corbeaunu, Parker, Carty, Cundle, Campbell.

Subs: Hoonett, Smith, Sangare, Harkin, Kanoola, Birtwistle, Hesketh.

Palace: Jacob Russell, Thisleton, Adaramola, M.Boateng, Jude Russell, Chamberlin-Gayle, Steele, Aveiro, Addy, Street, Pierrick.

Subs: Whitworth, Wright, Siddik, Smith, Mooney, Ajayi, Gordon.
