Under-18s set for Sunderland test

West Ham United's Under-18s travel to Sunderland for their next Barclays U18 Premier League Tier One fixture on Saturday and manager Steve Potts is looking for more of the same performance-wise from his team.

The Hammers suffered a narrow 3-2 defeat at West Bromwich Albion last weekend, but Potts was satisfied with the display and believes a repeat would this time result in victory.

"We're looking for a continuation from last week's peformance really," he told whufc.com. "We played some good stuff, but just couldn't quite get the result - the one thing we do need to be is more ruthless.

"It's a long journey to Sunderland for this game - we went up on Friday and it's good for the team to experience an overnight stay. It's something that they'll experience more of in their careers ahead so it's good for them to get used to it now.

"We've won one, drawn one and lost one of our three games so far in this phase, but I've been more pleased with the performances. Hopefully we can find that same level of performance at Sunderland, but this time gain more reward in terms of the result."

Like the Hammers, Sunderland have a perfect symmetry to their record in Tier One, having also taken four points from three starts. They suffered a 5-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur last week after finishing fourth in the seven-team National Group Two in the first half of the season.

Saturday's game will take place at the Sunderland Academy of Light training ground with an 11am kick-off.
