West Ham v Cheltenham preview
Ravel Morrison is set to make his full debut start of the season for West Ham in the Capital One Cup clash with League Two Cheltenham at Upton Park.
Morrison played the last 15 minutes of Saturday's goalless Barclays Premier League draw at Newcastle and boss Sam Allardyce indicated Morrison is one of a number of fringe players who could be given their chance.
New signing Razvan Rat is set for his competitive Hammers debut while Stewart Downing could retain his place in the side after expressing his wish for more match practice.
Cheltenham manager Mark Yates will be keen to see a repeat of Saturday's performance at Accrington when his side travel to the capital.
Yates could choose to stick with the players who helped the Robins bounce back from the horror show against Plymouth with a solid 1-0 win at the Crown Ground.
Jermaine McGlashan and Byron Harrison will be desperate for a chance to prove their worth after they were dropped to the bench at the weekend.
Veteran striker Jamie Cureton is still sidelined with a shoulder injury he sustained in Cheltenham's 2-2 draw with Burton on the opening day.
