Devonshire backing the Hammers

Former West Ham United midfielder Alan Devonshire has told West Ham TV that he is backing West Ham United to have a successful day at Wembley on Saturday.

Devonshire knows all about enjoyable days our at Wembley as he was part of the West Ham team that beat Arsenal 1-0 in the FA Cup final in 1980, courtesy of a 13th minute-Trevor Brooking header. The former wide midfielder says playing at the Home of Football is a great feeling.

"It was good times and it was a good era for the club and it is great that we are back there again," Devonshire said. "It's a special place and I was lucky enough to play there a few times. Hopefully it's going to be a fantastic day at Wembley again for the club."

Devonshire, who made 358 appearances for the Hammers, scoring 29 times, has faith in the squad to deliver Premier League status for West Ham on Saturday. The Ex-England International believes they can feed off manager Sam Allardyce's previous experience of winning the Play-Offs to ensure success on Saturday.

"The club is big enough now and we have players with loads of experience so I expect us to get a result. Wembley is away from home and we are decent away from home. I will keep my fingers crossed for sure.

"This club deserves to be in the Premier League and the fans deserve it too. So hopefully Big Sam and the boys can do the job on Saturday."
