Hammers next for U23s

21 November 2016

Rovers' development squad are back on duty this Monday night when they travel to take on West Ham United.

After consecutive cup matches against Oldham Athletic, it is a return to Premier League 2 action with a match against the Hammers at the Chigwell Construction Stadium, the home of Dagenham & Redbridge FC.

Damien Johnson's young hopefuls will be eager to build on their Lancashire Senior cup progression against a West Ham side that they faced three times last season.

Rovers defeated the Hammers 4-3 in a topsy-turvy encounter at Ewood back in September, but were then knocked out of the Premier League Cup at the quarter-final stage as they went down 2-1.

In March the points were shared when the two sides last met in the league with a 1-1 draw at the Rush Green Stadium.

A young squad has travelled south for this evening's match. Kick-off at Dagenham is at 7.00pm.
