UPDATE: He played 60 minutes in a 3-1 win.
Spurs are playing a league match tomorrow at Crystal Palace, but it was never expected that DeAndre Yedlin would appear on that bench, considering he just started training. However, the youngster may get some playing time and a closer look from coaches in just a couple of hours in Tottenham's U-21 team playing away at West Ham.
Tottenham announced the travelling team via Twitter and their site, specifically teasing Yedlin's first appearance.

The game begins at 7 PM GMT (11 AM PST), and unfortunately there won't be a broadcast of the match. Tottenham's twitter feed (@SpursOfficial) will have live updates and the team's site should post a recap afterwards, which will be your best best for following along with the action.
Yedlin joins other young Tottenham players who have just returned from loan or are just breaking onto the bench of the first team. Fellow former MLS-er Grant Ward, who was on loan to the Chicago Fire, joins Yedlin on the 16-man game roster.
