UEFA European Under-19 Championship Elite Qualifying clash on Thursday as Scotland take on Montenegro...

BANKS'S Stadium is playing host to three UEFA European Under-19 Championship Elite Qualifying Round games this week.

The first took place on Saturday and saw England run out convincing 6-0 winners against Montenegro, before Bank Holiday Monday saw Montenegro go down by four goals to nil at the hands of Ukraine.

Thursday will see Scotland lock horns with Montenegro (kick-off 3.00pm).

These are the final round of qualification fixtures for the Euro Under-19 Championship, which takes place in Hungary in July.

Drawn in Group A, England play their three guests over five days - with Banks's Stadium and Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium the chosen venues – with only the group winners progressing to the last eight.

The finals also act as a qualification mechanism for the next FIFA Under-20 World Cup, which takes place in New Zealand in June 2015.

To secure qualification for the Under-20 World Cup, England must first qualify for the Under-19s finals, and then finish among the top six in UEFA's annual tournament.

Noel Blake's side secured their place in the Elite Round after finishing top of their First Qualifying Round in Slovenia last September.

Tickets are now on sale for games at both venues, priced at £3 (adults) and £1 (concessions). Saddlers' season ticket holders can get a free ticket for the game taking place here at Banks's Stadium. Simply bring your 2013/14 or 2014/15 season ticket booklet to the Ticket Office to claim your FREE ticket (one ticket per booklet per game).
