and his team will faceStockport
in FA Cup’s third round on Monday.The Hammers
have enjoyed good form recently as they have managed to establish themselves in tenth place of thePremier League
table. Ahead of his team’s next FA Cup match, David Moyes has insisted that his team will fight for cup glory and won’t be affected by their good performances in the Premier League.
“You take it as an insult when someone says, ‘Are you going to go for the cup this year?’. Every year, I’ve gone for the cup, never once have I not gone for it. Nothing would give me more pleasure than winning the cup.
“Sometimes you go up against better teams and yes, you do need to use your squad players and yes, sometimes we need to use other players.
“But all our first team players will be there. We might need to fill one or two spaces with some young players because of Covid, etcetera, behind the scenes, but apart from that, we will be going with all our players.”
Asked about their fifth-tier rivals, Moyes responded:
“It’s a big night for Stockport, a big game for them, Monday night under the lights, television there – it’s the sort of game you really want at that level.
“Stockport’s main ambition will to be get out of the Conference and back into the EFL. But a good run in the cup…
“Unfortunately for Stockport, they can’t fill the stadium with supporters, but certainly the television money will help Stockport in the future and be something they are grateful for.”
