Reserves face West Brom tonight

West Ham United play their first home reserve match of the season at home to West Bromwich Albion this evening.

After a youthful second string went down 2-0 away to Chelsea a fortnight ago in the opening match of the Barclays Premier Reserve League, a stronger selection is set to be in action at the Woodside Park home of Bishop's Stortford. Among those possibly in contention are James Collins, who has not played a competitive game since his knee injury in January, and Lee Bowyer, who last figured in the Carling Cup tie with Macclesfield Town last month.

West Bromwich Albion have had two games so far this season - losing 3-2 away to Tottenham Hotspur and then winning 3-0 at home to Fulham. will have full text coverage of the game along with all the action and reaction after the final whistle. Admission is £5 for adults and £2 for concessions, with West Ham United season ticket holders getting in free. Kick-off is at 7pm.
