Ehiogu lauds Carter-Vickers, singles out three more promising talents

The Tottenham Hotspur youth coach was delighted after his side's friendly v Stevenage.

Tottenham Hotspur academy coach Ugo Ehiogu has heaped praise on Cameron Carter-Vickers for his role as a 'rock' in defence during his side's 2-0 win over Stevenage on Saturday afternoon, according to the club's official website.

Indeed, the north London club's youngsters impressed once again but Ehiogu was keen to highlight their defensive achievements, with Spurs having kept a clean sheet against Teddy Sheringham's men.

According to the coach, Carter-Vickers was a 'rock' at the back, while he also singled out three more young players.

Connor Ogilvie, Kyle Walker-Peters and Milos Vejkovic were all name-checked and the future looks as bright as always for the north London side.

Ehiogu told Tottenham's official site: "Cameron Carter-Vickers was a rock at the back, Connor Ogilvie’s performances are becoming more assertive, which I like and he’s making progress.

"We set Kyle Walker-Peters a task to get more challenges in and to be a more conventional full-back, he tried that and we’re pleased with him. Milos Veljkovic managed the game really well.

"We know we’ll have to be better and other teams will provide us with different challenges but on the whole, we’re very content. Everyone is on track."

Recently, after a 3-2 defeat to Peterborough, Ehiogu praised Cy Goddard, although he had a different focus this time around, concentrating more on discussing the displays of his defenders.

Tottenham's senior side, meanwhile, kick off their Premier League campaign with a tough visit to Manchester United next weekend. It'll be the first top-flight game of the season - and what a treat it should be for the neutrals.
