idderminster vs West Ham LIVE!
David Moyes’ team will be hoping to avoid a classic FA Cup upset when they travel to face National League North side Kidderminster on Saturday afternoon.
The Hammers booked their place in the fourth round with a 2-0 victory over Leeds, but they lost their two Premier League matches before the recent break and will be keen to get straight back to winning ways.
West Ham sit fifth in the table and have a Europa League last-16 tie to look forward to, but a deep run in the FA Cup is something they have been unable to produce for many season.
This will be Kidderminster’s eighth match of their cup run and manager Russ Penn is particularly excited to face Moyes.
“I’m telling the truth, he probably would have been top of my list for any manager to come down for the day,” Penn said of the Hammers’ boss.

Standard Sport prediction
As tempting as it is to imagine another FA Cup upset, West Ham will surely have too much.
West Ham to win 2-0.
El Massivo. Nice.
West Ham predicted XI: Areola; Johnson, Diop, Alese, Masuaku; Kral, Noble; Benrahma, Lanzini, Vlasic; Yarmolenko.
Early team news
West Ham enjoyed the luxury of welcoming Kurt Zouma back recently but Michail Antonio is a major doubt having only returned from Jamaica duty on Friday morning.
Due to their lack of activity in the January transfer window, it will be interesting to see whether or not Moyes turns to some of his young players.
They impressed, albeit in a losing performance, against Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League earlier this season and could well be afforded another run out.
How to watch
TV channel: The game will be broadcast on BBC One.
Live stream: Both the BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website will provide live streams.
