W.

est Ham welcomed Doncaster to the London Stadium on Saturday to reach the FA Cup fifth round for the first time in five seasons.

The Hammers lost to eventual champions Manchester United in the last sixteen after losing to West Brom, AFC Wimbledon and Wigan in recent years.

Doncaster has claimed some famous scalps in recent history but will make a rare foray into the competition with the win at the London Stadium.

West Ham vs Doncaster is scheduled for Saturday, January 23, 2021 at 3 p.m. GMT.

The game will be played behind closed doors at the London Stadium.

TV channel: The game is broadcast on TV via the red button and the BBC iPlayer.

Live Stream: UK viewers can watch the game on the BBC Sports website or the BBC iPlayer.

Mikhail Antonio will likely be rested as he is David Moyes’ only first-team striker who could give Ademipo Odubeko a chance to make his first-team debut.

Young defender Ben Johnson could come in while Ryan Fredericks is pushing for minutes as well.

Expect Said Benrahma to continue as he continues to settle, while Andriy Yarmolenko will hope for a start. Darren Randolph is expected to take his place in goal.

Arthur Masuaku is David Moyes’ only injury problem.

Doncaster’s defense is one of the best in the premier league, but the Hammers should have enough of it to take the win even if the hosts made changes.
