Spurs have been handed a home draw against Gillingham in the third round of the EFL Cup and it will see a familiar face return to the Lane.

The Gillingham manager Justin Edinburgh was Tottenham’s left-back for the best part of a decade after being signed from Southend in 1990, making a total of 236 appearances for the club.

During that time Edinburgh was part of the side that won the FA Cup in 1991 and then featured prominently in the 1999 League Cup win over Leicester, in which he was sent off after a clash with Robbie Savage.

Now a highly-rated young manager, Edinburgh will take his League One team to White Hart Lane on the week commencing September 19th.

It looks like a perfect opportunity for Mauricio Pochettino to give some youngsters an opportunity to shine, with the likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers, Harry Winks and Marcus Edwards among those who could realistically play.
