Tony's Tough Test Against City

TONY Carr knows his Hammers are in for a tough tie when they take on Manchester City in the FA Youth Cup Fourth Round at Upton Park this evening, kick-off 7.00pm.

"Training has been going well and obviously not having a game on Saturday has helped us," said Tony. "Everyone is fit and raring to go. I am just hoping now that the boys can do their stuff on the night.

"All the background work you put in it doesn't change the fact that Manchester City will be a tough call and it is going to be a hard game. Man City are a very strong side but in the FA Youth Cup it is all about what happens on the night as some results are proving already.

"We are in for a very difficult test against Manchester City, a team with some very good young players.

"It should be a good Cup tie and hopefully we can go through."

West Ham United's team will be chosen from the following squad:

Kemal (GK), Blackmore (GK), Andrews, Widdowson, White, Tomkins, Hales, Reid, Cowley, Hines, Ephraim, Welsh, Davidson, Jeffery, Collison, Spence, Harvey, Bowes.
