Bishop's Stortford preview

A West Ham United XI side will travel to Bishop's Stortford on Wednesday evening on a high after hitting three goals in each of their last two games.

Alex Dyer is expected to name a similar side to that which swept aside Kingstonian 3-0 on Friday for the short trip to face The Blues, who finished ninth in the the Blue Square South last season.

Nigel Quashie is expected to captain the side once more, but it is the inclusion of the youthful attacking options that is set to get supporters' pulses racing. The striking duo of Frank Nouble, with three goals in his two games since signing from Chelsea, and Anthony Edgar caused the K's back line no end of problems last week, and their attacking prowess could be supplemented by the likes of Zavon Hines and Savio following their return from the Barclays Asia Trophy in China.

At the back, youngsters Holmar Eyjolfsson and Matt Fry, who handled the size and experience of former Hammer Ian Pearce so well at Kingsmeadow, could be joined by Bondz 'Gala and Jordan Spence following their return from the east. It remains to be seen whether new signing Fabio Daprela has had enough time to adjust to his new surroundings following his arrival from Grasshopper Club Zurich to play a part.

Other youngsters that could feature in the game following their Chinese adventure are goalkeepers Peter Kurucz, Marek Stech and midfielder Josh Payne, giving Dyer a dearth of options throughout his team. will have live text updates from Woodside Park, where kick-off is at 7.30pm.
