Tottenham Hotspur continue their build-up for the new Premier League campaign with another friendly in midweek.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s first game in charge saw Spurs draw 1-1 with League Two side Leyton Orient last weekend.
Spurs were missing most of their big names but still fielded the likes of Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura.
They had to settle for a draw though, with youngster Dane Scarlett seeing his strike cancelled out by Orient’s Ruel Sotiriou. Now, the Portuguese takes his side another fourth tier team in Colchester United.
Ahead of the friendly contest, here is all you need to know.
