PL2 side prepare for Wycombe test



  • West Ham United PL2 resume their Checkatrade Trophy campaign this week
  • They face Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park in Southern Group D (7.45pm kick-off)
  • The Hammers will be looking to pick up their first points of the Trophy campaign.

West Ham United PL2 resume their Checkatrade Trophy campaign on Tuesday as they visit Adams Park to face Sky Bet League Two side Wycombe Wanderers.
The Hammers performed valiantly in their first fixture, a 4-2 defeat to Coventry City at the end of August, and will hope to get their first points of this season’s competition on the board.
They’ll be buoyed by their last outing on Saturday; their 2-0 victory over Leicester City in the Premier League Cup was described by assistant manager Liam Manning as their best performance of the season so far.
“It’s nice to see the stuff we’ve been working on the training ground is being put out on the field,” he said.
“If you look at our previous matches, we’ve created lots of chances but at times not got it in the box quick enough or been clinical with the finish.
“The goals are coming and the lads are doing well. Every day we work on things and the Leicester display showed that the hard work is paying off.”
The Hammers are currently third in Southern Group D and face a Wycombe team who swept aside Northampton Town of League One 3-0 in their opening fixture.
Their form in the league has been inconsistent though and the Chairboys are currently 15th in the bottom tier of the Football League, just five points above the relegation zone.
“All the competitions we enter, we want to do well in. We played great on Saturday and now we want to be consistently good,” Manning added.
“Tuesday’s game will be another good test for the boys and it’s one they're looking forward to.”
Wycombe Wanderers v West Ham United PL2 kicks off at 7.45pm at Adams Park on Tuesday. Supporters should note that advance sales have now stopped for the Checkatrade Trophy Group Stage match. Tickets will now only be available to purchase at Adams Park on the night.
