Match Report - West Ham Reserves V Watford Reserves - 13 Apr 2004

West Ham's reserves extended their unbeaten run under Roger Cross' tutelage to a dozen games with a 1-0 win over Watford on Tuesday evening.

The last of the home matches for the second string this season saw Graeme Carrick score the winning goal to keep the sequence going.

"He has got a couple of goals for us lately," says Roger.

He was particularly happy with the goalkeeper's performance and adds:

"Young Darren Behcet made his debut and played very well; he was very confident like Matthew Reid was recently when he made his debut.

"Both are good goalkeepers and we are lucky to have them.

"Expectations are pretty good for both of them and if they keep their heads screwed on they have every chance of making it."

Of the match overall, Roger says:

"It was not a great game and the pitch was not good; it was a bit bumpy.

"The three seniors played well against a Watford side with quite a bit of experience."

Elliot Ward played 90 minutes and Roger adds:

"Elliot had his first full game since his back operation in the summer and he is working his way to full fitness - so that was a plus as well."

TEAM: Behcet, Lumsden, Quinn, Bunce, Ward, Blewitt, Wright, Nowland, Carrick, Carole, Tattam.

Subs: Parrington, Reid, Stokes, Henry, Shaw.
