Fresh off last weekend's EFL Youth Alliance Cup draw with Shrewsbury Town, Neil Woods' Walsall Under 18s side return to action later today as they play host to Accrington Stanley in the EFL Youth Alliance.

A Cameron Peters brace earned the young Saddlers a point last weekend as they and the Shrews started their Cup campaign with a draw.

Walsall are so far undefeated in the Alliance having won two and drawn one of their opening three games, and will be keen to keep up the momentum as they seek to mount a challenge for the title.

Accrington, who were defeated by Burnley in their opening Youth Alliance Cup Group game, have only played one Alliance game so far this season, a one-nil win over Port Vale, and will no doubt be keen to keep their 100% record this weekend.

Today's match is due to be played at the Staffordshire Football Association's Headquarters on Ray Hall Lane in Great Barr, with kick-off scheduled for 12:00pm.
