Nathan Trott made a triumphant return to the West Ham United Under 23 team as they defeated Leicester City 1 – 0 in a massive Premier League 2 clash which could have a huge bearing on their destiny this campaign.
The big news was that Trott was making his long-awaited return from injury with a start in goal.
According to coach Liam Manning, West Ham United’s Under 23s deserved their three points.
The Hammers picked up the win at London Stadium thanks to Dan Kemp’s second half penalty, a result which moves them out of the relegation zone as they approach the campaign’s final two matches.
The vital victory was secured by in-form winger Kemp, who was fouled in the penalty area and stepped up himself to confidently dispatch the spot-kick.
And Manning, who was pleased with his side’s display, labelled the result a “massive” one.
He said: “It was a big goal and it’s a big result. It obviously gives us a chance of staying in the league and we have two big games to go. Overall, I thought we deserved it, to be fair.”
