West Ham United's players were put through their paces ahead of tonight's game against Dynamo Dresden.

Looking to follow up the good performance and 3-0 victory over Rot-Weiss Erfurt earlier this week, the Hammers were working hard as they look to Friday evening's match, which is expected to be played in front of an estimated 30,000 crowd, including a strong core of West Ham fans.

Once again the players were involved in an intense session of work before stretching and cycling back to the hotel. Ricardo Vaz Te was lively following his brace of goals on Wednesday and captain Kevin Nolan was once again back on the training pitches.

There were a few faces watching the Hammers training today, including youngsters from the Dresden Summer Soccer School and a few autograph hunters, who the West Ham players were happy to meet and oblige with signatures.

Manager Sam Allardyce kept a close eye on proceedings and is expected to field a strong line-up with a few changes from Wednesday's match against Rot-Weiss Erfurt.

Kick off against Dynamo Dresden will be at 7.30pm UK time, with West Ham TV bringing you an exclusive LIVE broadcast of the event. Click here for more information.
