Strong reserve squad to face Fulham

Reserve team coach Steve Brown has named a strong squad to face Fulham this evening.

Hammers face the Cottagers at Bishop's Stortford's Woodside Park stadium, and will be hoping to seal their first win of the campaign after picking up just one point from their opening seven matches.

Mark Noble is one of four players with first-team experience involved tonight, alongside Tyrone Mears, John Pantsil and Shaun Newton, while young defender James Tomkins is likely to feature after recovering from a shoulder injury.

Czech under-21 goalkeeper Marek Stech makes his second appearance for the reserves, while youth team strikers Jack Jeffery and Freddie Sears will link up in attack.

Kick-off is at 7.00pm and admission is priced at £4.00 for adults and £1.00 for under-16s.

Squad: Stech, Mears, Pantsil, Collison, Tomkins, Ngala, Newton, Noble, Jeffery, Sears, Stanislas, Spence, O'Neil, Fitzgerald, Hunt, Hales.
