📝 Match Preview: West Ham U23 (H)

Penultimate group game for Dan Green's side

17 January 2022

Exeter City's U23 side will face West Ham U23 at St James Park on Tuesday night, knowing only a win will do if they face any chance of progression from the Premier League Cup group stage.

The Grecians face an uphill struggle to progress as one of the group's top two sides, but it is still possible should they beat the Hammers. Dan Green's side drew 2-2 with Swansea City in South Wales on Friday.

Dan Green's Thoughts

Following Friday's draw at Swansea, U23 coach Dan Green stressed the importance of the City supporters backing their future.

"They've backed us really well in this campaign - and if they come on Tuesday they may even see some players that are even younger than what we saw today and get a chance to see some players they haven't seen before."
