In Form West Ham and Doncaster Meet in FA Cup

This weekend sees the FA Cup enter the fourth round of the competition and on Saturday the 23rd of January we have a meeting between West Ham United and Doncaster Rovers at the London Stadium.

The hosts begin the game sitting 7th in the Premier League while the visitors are in 4th place in League One.

West Ham United come into this match having defeated West Bromwich Albion 2-1 at home in the Premier League on Tuesday night. Despite having the better of the first half it took until the 45th minute for The Hammers to make the breakthrough but West Bromwich Albion scored the equaliser just 6 minutes into the second half. However, West Ham applied plenty of pressure following that goal and scored the winner on 66 minutes.

That result means West Ham have won each of their last 4 games in all competitions and are undefeated in their 6 most recent matches. One of the 4 victories came in the FA Cup as West Ham recorded a 1-0 victory at Stockport County in the third round of competition.

Trends show West Ham are undefeated in their last 4 home matches and have lost only one of their last 11 at the London Stadium. However, they have been inconsistent in the FA Cup and West Ham have won 4 of their 11 most recent FA Cup ties. They have seen under 2.5 goals scored in 7 of their last 8 games in the FA Cup.

Doncaster Rovers come into the game having defeated Rochdale 1-0 at home in League One on the weekend. It was a match they were expected to win with Rochdale towards the bottom of the table and it keeps Doncaster Rovers within touching distance of the automatic promotion places.

That victory means Doncaster Rovers have won 7 of their last 8 games in all competitions including a 1-0 win at Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup. They have played 3 fixtures to get to this stage of the competition with additional victories coming at FC United of Manchester and Carlisle United.

Therefore, Doncaster Rovers are used to playing away from home in the FA Cup this season and winning.

Their overall away form shows 4 straight victories and Doncaster Rovers have scored at least one goal in each of their last 10 away games.

Team news and West Ham United may be tempted to rotate some of their players with Arthur Masuaku the only injured player. Andriy Yarmolenko, Mark Noble, Pablo Fornals, Issa Diop, and Ryan Fredericks could all start.

Doncaster Rovers will be relying on the goals of Fejiri Okenabirhie, who may play a lone strikers role in this match. On loan Welsh international Matt Smith is a key man in midfield.

This could be a tough afternoon for West Ham United and they may find it difficult to prevent the visitors from scoring, especially if The Hammers make changes in defence. However, we expect to see West Ham score a few goals themselves to win the match.
