Irons Cruise To 3-0 Win

Watching a free streamed game should have been pleasurable, but watching Hammers only striker running around filled Reading's Jeriel Dorsett, under pressure from Issa Diop, knocked the ball into his own net from a corner to give Hammers the lead as half-time approached at the Mad Stad. It was nothing more than the Irons deserved as the team looked to have a decent run out against 'determined opposition.

The hosts were rather depleted, consequently highly rated Conor Coventry doubled Hammers' lead before the hour mark, tucking home a fine Ben Johnson pass, before Johnson wrapped up the win with a fine solo finish. David Moyes handed starts to both Coventry and Armstrong Oko-Flex alongside captain Mark Noble in central midfield, and the former Celtic man set up Pablo Fornals for his attempt on goal inside four minutes.

It was a relatively even first half until Jarrod Bowen's corner deflected off Dorsett for the opener, Hammers always looked in control and were never in any difficulty against the chamionship side. Said Benrahma was among the half-time introductions, and he was involved in the build-up for the second goal, as Nathan Holland played in Johnson to tee up Coventry for a tap in. Holland almost scored himself, after great work from Manuel Lanzini, another half-time substitution, but was tackled while about to strike.

Johnson then jinked past three before slotting home, and Benrahma had a late volley that flew agonisingly off target.-Ed

it was a good game ( watched it on face book) and i thought Conor Coventry and Armstrong Oko-Flex had very good games and more than capable of having a run in the 1st team
