No TV coverage of Stanley game

stadiumThere will be no live TV coverage of the English Football League (EFL) cup game against Accrington Stanley at the London Stadium tonight either domestically or internally meaning no illegal streams either will be streamed either.

This is the first ever meeting between the two sides and the first time Accrington Stanley have got to the third round of the League Cup in their history, having been eliminated in the second round four times.

West Ham have won seven of their last nine League Cup ties against fourth-tier opponents. The one loss was a 2-1 home defeat against Aldershot in 2011.

A crowd of around 40,000 expected tonight at the 57,000 capacity stadium and 500 of those will be Accrington Stanley fans who have the whole away section to themselves.

BBC Five Live Sports Extra are covering the game with audio commentary and their LIVE feed can be  at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/bbc_radio_five_live_sports_extra
