West Ham’s under 23s can pave the way for the first team when they spring into action against a bang in form Manchester City outfit at Dagenham this afternoon (KO: 1.30 pm).
Academy boss Terry Westley is set to name his youngest team of the season with four under 18s taking their places in the Irons team currently sitting in fifth place in Premier League 2 Division One.
We understand that Conor Coventry, Domingous Quina (above), Ben Johnson, and Rosaire Longelo have all been given the nod.e)
The young Irons are currently unbeaten in three games and will be wanting to go one better than the point they collected in the 0-0 draw against Chelsea last Sunday.
City – holding seventh place – are unbeaten in four games and Westley said: “We need to be at our very best – they have come into real form but hopefully we can set up a good afternoon with a victory and the first team doing the business at Selhurst Park.
