U18s ready for Wolves test

The West Ham United U18s return to Premier League Play-Off action with a difficult away trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday lunchtime.

Having finished sixth in the Southern Division, the young Hammers qualified for the second tier of the Play Offs among the likes of Liverpool, Sunderland and Leicester City.

After two games, the Hammers are currently bottom of the table, drawing 0-0 with Brighton & Hove Albion before slipping to a 2-0 away defeat at Derby County.

Saturday’s hosts Wolves have been in superb form of late, unbeaten in their last eight games, winning six. That run included the start of their Play Off campaign and after three games, they top the table with five points.   

The Black Country outfit got off to a flying start by beating Derby County 3-0 in an impressive performance before securing credible away 1-1 draws at Reading and Liverpool.   

Saturday’s kick off is at 12pm and we will have a match report on www.whufc.com shortly afterward. 

Following tomorrow's game, the U18s will face Liverpool, Sunderland, Reading and Leicester City.
