Hammers fans kept in the dark


By Hughie Southon

West Ham fans will remain in the dark over any plans David Moyes has for tomorrow night’s game at Lincoln City until just before kick off.

There will be no press conference held today or tomorrow as is usually the case for Premier League games.

Where a non live game is involved in the Carabao Cup there is no requirement for a presser to be held.

So we are left to guess at the sort of team the manager will field as he of course will be unavailable to give his thoughts on the fixture.

It will be interesting to see where Said Benrahma stands in this affair having failed to make any sort of appearance at Liverpool.

And this may also be a game which sees the likes of Conor Coventry, Ben Johnson and Konstantinos Mavropanos involved, with the first two having seen no first team action at all this season, and the Greece international performing well in last weeks Europa Cup match.
