Reserves face Fulham at Craven Cottage

Steve Brown takes charge of the reserve team for the first time tonight, as Hammers take on Fulham at Craven Cottage.

The former Charlton and Reading defender, who joined the staff at Upton Park last week, has a fairly young squad to select from, with the likes of Christian Dailly, Carlton Cole, Tyrone Mears and George McCartney adding experience to the line-up.

Highly-rated Czech youth goalkeeper Marek Stech is also included in the squad for the first time after recovering from an ankle injury.

The match kicks off at 7.00pm.

Squad: Blackmore, Mears, McCartney, N'Gala, Widdowson, Reid, Collison, Dailly, Cole, Hales, Jeffery, Stech, O'Neil, Sears, Fitzgerald, Harvey.
