Hammers defender James Tomkins said: “We think we can do well. We’ve got a good squad and for the players who played and haven’t been involved in too many first team games, it is good fitness for us.

“We’re trying to fight for our places in the team. Hopefully we’ll have a bit of a run in it.”

Meanwhile, 24 year old Hammers midfielder Jack Collison is confident that helping the East London club’s bid for Wembley glory will boost his chances of a first-team place.

Collison has only played six minutes in the Premier league this season but has manage to get a start for both league cup games.

But it was Collison who helped West Ham to glory with his cross to provide want away striker Ricardo Vaz Te with a golden opportunity to nod home the winner.
