West Ham expect near capacity crowd tonight


West Ham will call a little close to full capacity for the second leg Euro Conference game against Gent at the London Stadium this evening.

The Hammers are a victory away from appearing in their second European semi final in successive years and with confidence growing of avoiding relegation following the fine draw against Arsenal a big crowd will be cheering the team on.

We understand that we will beĀ  short of full capacity with 53,000 expected to be attending the match.

Manager David Moyes has declared that the team is likely to be changed again at that taking part in two competitions with a Thursday/Sunday routine involved makes life more difficult for head coaches.

We can assume that Alphonse Areola will be back in goal for Lukasz Fabianski and with Gianluca Scamacca unavailable that Danny Ings or Mikey Antonio will fil the front role.

But beyond that it is very much a case of wait and see.
