The game will be played at The Hammers' Little Heath Training Complex, kick-off 1pm. The match will not be open to the public and we have been advised that there will be no live stream. There will, however, be full coverage on the Club's social channels on matchday with reaction over the weekend.

It will be The Bees' third outing this month following defeats to National League sides Bromley and Aldershot Town over the previous two weekends. New signings Lachlan Brook and Valgeir Valgerisson could both be involved for the first time following their recent arrival, while Neil MacFarlane will have Joe Adams and Paris Maghoma back after international duty with Wales and England respectively.

West Ham's Under-23 have taken just one point from their opening four matches in the Premier League 2, that coming from a 2-2 draw against Southampton, but do have two wins from two in the EFL Trophy. After beating Southend United 3-1 in early September they continued their perfect start with a 1-0 win at Colchester United a fortnight ago.

After Friday's match, attention will quickly turn to the London Senior Cup for Brentford B after they were handed a repeat of last season's final in the Second Round of this year's edition.

That game against Hendon will be played at Silver Jubilee Park on Tuesday, 20 October, with tickets currently on sale here.
