Reserves face Fulham

West Ham United reserves will be looking to build on an encouraging result in Poland last week when they return to league action on Tuesday evening

Alex Dyer's side shared four goals with Polish side Arka in a special friendly last week as they bounced back from two straight defeats in the Barclays Premier Reserve League South. Dyer is expected to once again name a youthful team, but can call upon Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson and Anthony Edgar once more following their return from loan spells at Cheltenham Town and Bournemouth respectively.

"We've got another young side playing and they're going to have to come to the table and work and learn this is part of their development," Dyer said. "It doesn't matter what side we put out, we are representing West Ham United and they should be at that level now where they can handle reserve-team football.

"As long as they give 100 per cent and work hard everything else will come with it. The team has got enough to go to Fulham and get the right result."

Both teams are level on four points each but the Hammers' superior goal difference means they sit sixth in the table with the Cottagers a place below.

As usual, will have live text updates from Motspur Park this evening. Kick-off is at 7pm.
