Posh v West Ham U21s | Match Preview

Posh host West Ham youngsters in the Papa John’s Trophy on Tuesday evening.

7 December 2020

West Ham United under 21s visit the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday evening (7pm).

Peterborough United welcome the West Ham United under 21s to the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday evening in the second round of the Papa John’s Trophy (7pm).

Posh progressed to the knockout phase of the competition after coming through the group stages against Fulham under 21s, Burton Albion and Cambridge United. Darren Ferguson’s men are looking to bounce back after a frustrating run of results and a number of squad players will have the chance to impress ahead of the Sky Bet League One fixture with Rochdale on Saturday.

TEAM NEWS

Dan Butler is unavailable due to a calf injury, but will return for the clash with Ipswich Town, while front man Ricky-Jade Jones is scheduled to return on Boxing Day at Gillingham following a leg injury. Joe Ward could return to the squad for the clash with Charlton Athletic just after the Christmas period.

Teenager Flynn Clarke, who was named the Player of the Round for the group stages, is expected to feature while Serhat Tasdemir, Ronnie Edwards and Harrison Burrows are involved. Reece Brown and Ethan Hamilton could start in midfield.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Firstly, I am glad we are at home. We have watched West Ham’s youngsters in action. This game opens opportunities to the ones that haven’t been playing. I want players to take those opportunities in certain positions and of course the aim is to try and get into the next round of the competition. We need to stick to a formation that suits everyone, we changed formation on Saturday, hindsight is a great thing and when you watch it back, we didn’t play the system well enough,” Darren Ferguson said.

Striker Mo Eisa hit a double as Posh beat West Ham United under 21s 3-0 at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Peterborough United recorded an emphatic 3-0 victory over a West Ham United under 21 side containing Ukraine international Andriy Yarmolenko with striker Mo Eisa netting a brace and Serhat Tasdemir bagging his first goal in Posh colours.

Flynn Clarke sent a shot wide of the target from 25-yards on four minutes after a lively start by Darren Ferguson’s men. Flynn Clarke, the winner of the Papa John’s Trophy Player of the Round in the group stage, had the ball in the back of the net on 12 minutes as Trott fumbled but the referee awarded a soft foul in the keepers’ favour.

Yarmolenko saw an effort kept out by the feet of Gyollai on 19 minutes after the Ukrainian international beat the offside trap. The same player saw an effort beaten to safety by Gyollai on 26 minutes as the Hammers tried to assert some control.

Brown sent a rasping drive wide of the target on 36 minutes after a neat spell of possession for Ferguson’s men. Eisa had a good chance to break the deadlock on 49 minutes after fine work from Brown and Kanu down the right, the latter pulling the ball back for the striker who just couldn’t keep his effort down.

Eisa swept a shot over the top following more good work from Kanu down the right on 52 minutes as Posh pushed for a breakthrough. That did arrive on 57 minutes as Clarke and Kanu linked and the latter put it on a plate for EISA to slide home at the back post to give Posh the lead.

Trott made two decent saves in succession, first keeping out a fierce drive by Eisa before positioning himself well to gather a snap-shot on the volley by Tasdemir. Yarmolenko was cautioned by the referee for arguably the worst dive I have ever seen on 70 minutes.

Posh made it 2-0 on 71 minutes as Serhat TASDEMIR swept home from around the penalty spot after an intelligent pull back into his path by Eisa. Posh made it 3-0 on 82 minutes as EISA grabbed his second goal of the game, crashing a shot into the roof of the net after the Hammers dallied in defence.

Gyollai did well to tip over a fierce Afolayan shot from range as the Hammers tried to find a consolation as we headed towards injury time. Hamilton was a whisker away from getting the goal his performance deserved in stoppage time, but his powerful left-foot curler whistled just wide.

Posh: Gyollai, Mason, Blake-Tracy, Edwards, Kanu (sub Mensah 81min), Burrows, Tasdemir, Hamilton, Brown (sub Barker 81min), Clarke, Eisa. Unused subs: Blackmore, Kent, Dembele, Broom.

West Ham U21: Trott, Yarmolenko, Dawson, Cardoso, Holland (sub Fevrier 46min), Lewis, Afolayan, Rosa (sub Chesters 41min), Longelo (sub Corbett 65min), Appiah-Forson, Baptiste. Unused subs: Jinadu, Okotcha, Adarkwa, Swyer.

Half-time: Peterborough United 0-0 West Ham United under 21s
Full-time: Peterborough United 3-0 West Ham United under 21s
