Reserves see off Stoke

Stoke City reserves 0-2 West Ham United reserves

Goals from Anthony Edgar and Zavon Hines on Monday night sealed another polished performance on the road for Alex Dyer's youthful second string.

The homegrown Hammers struck in the second half to make it three games unbeaten on the road after a goalless draw at Aston Villa and a 1-0 success away to Arsenal. With goalkeeper Peter Kurucz well protected by a back four marshalled by Bondz 'Gala and Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson, Edgar strode forward just before the hour to score with a tremendous strike before Hines converted a late penalty he had earned.

Dyer was particularly delighted with his team after several had also featured in a behind closed doors friendly against Chelsea on Friday. Edgar had scored with a delightful effort in that 4-2 triumph after coming on for Kieron Dyer to play at the attacking point of a midfield diamond. He played the whole 90 minutes in the same position against Stoke and linked up well with the tireless Balint Bajner and Hines.

West Ham United: Kurucz, O'Neill, Eyjolfsson, 'Gala, Fry, Okus, Lee, Edgar, Kearns, Bajner, Hines
