U18s set for Baggies test

The West Ham United Academy side will look to get back on track when they host West Bromwich Albion in the Barclays U18 Premier League on Wednesday.

Steve Potts and his team will welcome the Baggies to Little Heath for a 12 noon kick-off as they try and reignite a push for the division's top two and a spot in the end of season Play-Offs.

A superb run of eleven wins in twelve starts propelled them to the top of the Southern Division table, but a subsequent sequence of four straight defeats has checked their title ambitions.

They could still make the top two - and give themselves a chance of claiming the national title - should they return to form in their last three fixtures of the campaign, all of which will be played at home.

West Brom prop up the table, having taken 18 points from their 28 games, 34 points fewer than the Hammers.
