Randolph missing in action

Goal keeper Darren Randolph missed today’s FA Cup game against Doncaster Rovers after suffering a late knock.

The keeper was provisionally named in the West Ham starting lineup at the London Stadium, but he failed a late fitness test and was replaced by Fabianski.

Nathan Trott was drafted into bench leaving David Martin out in the cold.

Jarrod Bowen is missing from today’s matchday squad but it is not known whether he has picked up a knock or it was for tactical reasons and rested.

Meanwhile, Vladimir Coufal, Aaron Cresswell, Craig Dawson, Angelo Ogbonna and Michail Antonio were rested on the bench to be called on if needed.

On the bench, in comes, youngsters 17-year-old Centre back Jamal Baptise and 23-yarr-old centre forward Oladapo Afolayan.
