Hammers ready for Reading test

West Ham continues preparations for the 2021/22 season with a pre-season fixture at EFL Championship side Reading this evening.

The Irons will wear their new 2021/2022 Umbro Home Kit for the first time,

The Hammers will play their fourth warm-up fixture of the summer at the Select Car Leasing Stadium, having previously won 2-1 at Northampton Town and drawn 2-2 and 0-0 at Dundee and Leyton Orient respectively.

Wednesday’s game will see Moyes’ squad take on a Reading team that finished seventh in the Championship last season, just one place outside the Play-Offs, and with high hopes of returning to the Premier League at the end of the upcoming campaign. Due to COVID protocols in place at the Select Car Leasing Stadium, only 6,000 Reading fans will be in attendance. West Ham supporters will not be present but the club is planning to stream the game live.

David Moyes potentially welcomes a number of international players back into his squad for this game, as Łukasz Fabiański, Pablo Fornals and Saïd Benrahma have all returned to training at Rush Green this week.

Five first-team players remain away on international duty or post-UEFA Euro 2020 breaks – Winston Reid is at the Tokyo Olympic Games with New Zealand, while Declan Rice, Vladimír Coufal, Tomáš Souček and Andriy Yarmolenko are recovering after excelling for their respective countries at the Euros.

Kick-Off is 7 pm this evening
