U23s deserve attacking and defensive praise after Sunderland win – Westley

Terry Westley

West Ham United academy director Terry Westley believes his U23s side deserve two different types of praise after their 2-1 win over Sunderland – one for their attacking efforts in the first half and another for their defensive resolution in the second.

Toni Martinez says his West Ham United U23 side are desperate to get back to winning ways when they travel to Sunderland in Premier League 2 on Sunday.

The Hammers were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool at Dagenham and Redbridge’s Chigwell Construction Stadium in their last match, while Leicester City were 3-1 winners over Terry Westley’s men the week before.

“It’s a cliché, but goals change games,” said U23s assistant boss Liam Manning after West Ham United were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool on Monday.

The coach was referring to Toni Martinez’s first half missed penalty, which would have reduced the deficit to just one after the Reds had come flying out the blocks at the Chigwell Construction Stadium.
