Terry confident Chelsea youngsters ready to step up to the plate
Club captain Terry sees no reason why the stars of tomorrow cannot make an impact today and fully supports the policy of giving them game time in Carling Cup clashes such as Wednesday's meeting with Newcastle.
"We have a great squad of players mixed with some very good young players who are making their mark on the team," Terry said.
"These opportunities are not only great for them but also for our youth system and credit goes to everyone working hard in the academy.
"The manager has spoken about the importance of strength in our squad this season and competition for places is always a good thing."
