Strong Hammers Reserve Side For Coventry

KEVIN Keen has named one of the strongest Reserve sides of the season to take on Coventry City at Dagenham & Redbridge's Glyn Hopkin Stadium this evening.

Bobby Zamora and Hayden Mullins, who were involved in the first-team's clash with Brighton at the weekend, both start for the Hammers as do former Welsh international Andy Melville, Elliott Ward, Chris Cohen and Sergei Rebrov, who all have first-team experience.

Moses Ashikodi, who scored in last week's 2-0 win at Derby County, drops to the bench while young goalkeeper Darren Behcet returns to the side in place of Jimmy Walker.

Veteran Rufus Brevett and young defender Sam Wright are the other players who stand down from the team that won at Derby, while youth-team striker Tony Stokes is replaced on the bench by Frenchman Youssef Sofiane.

The team to take on Coventry is as follows:

1. Darren Behcet (GK)
2. Jemel Henry
3. Darren Blewitt
4. Elliott Ward
5. Andy Melville
6. Hayden Mullins
