Youth Team Draw

Tuesday, February 6th is the replay date for the trip to Oldham after a 0-0 draw at Upton Park.

David Cross' side gave the Hammers a good run for their money, particularly in the second half, but West Ham certainly had their chances to win.

James Allen was particularly busy, and a ninth minute cross for Leon Britton saw the dimunitive midfielder's shot saved by Tom Whittle.

Allen's free kick then saw Eastwood head wide before a Daryl McMahon cross flashed across the face of the goal.

A Riddle run then set up Britton to volley over before Allen forced a good save.

In a game that fizzled out somewhat from the Hammers point of view in the second half, Cascione had the best chance but chipped wide after being clear through.
