Strong Hammers Side To Take On Rams

FIVE players with first-team experience line up for the Hammers Reserves tonight as they take on former Premier Reserve League Champions Derby County at Pride Park.

The most notable changes to the side that lost 2-0 to Ipswich Town last week are the inclusions of James Walker, Rufus Brevett and Sergei Rebrov, all unused substitutes from the first-team¹s 2-1 win over QPR at Upton Park on Saturday.

Youngsters Elliott Ward and Chris Cohen are the other players with first-team experience lining-up for Kevin Keen¹s side this evening.
Midfielder Mark Noble, who left the field with a sprained ankle after just 10 minutes of the Reserves¹ last match, is ruled out of the side this evening.
