The date for Southampton's FA Youth Cup tie away to Blackpool has been confirmed.

Saints' youngsters will travel to Bloomfield Road for a 7pm GMT kick-off on Tuesday 16th January, as they bid to reach the last 16 of the competition.

Craig Fleming's side advanced past the third round last week with an impressive display at home against Wolves, as they triumphed 4-1 at St Mary's.

As a result of the Youth Cup fixture, the Under-18s' visit to Leicester City in the Under-18 Premier League has been switched to Saturday 27th January.
