FA Cup - Shrewsbury Town 0 West Ham United 0

The Hammers live to fight another day after a poor display against League One Shrewsbury Town saw the game end 0-0.

With the squad hit by injuries, David Moyes gave starts to Rice, Burke and Cullen whilst, as predicted before the game, Joe Hart was recalled between the sticks against his home town club.

In front of a capacity crowd, West Ham struggled to get going and looked lethargic against a Shrewsbury side that, at times, looked the far more likely to score.

In fact, the poorness of West Ham`s display can probably be summed up by the fact that the Hammers only had four-touches in the opposition area throughout the entire ninety minutes.

As for chances, the best ones fell to Shrewsbury who saw Hart, captaining West Ham against the club where he started his career, deny both Godfrey and Sadler with good saves.

Late on, our hosts almost snatched a victory but the Hammers defence denied their captain Abu Ogogo.

As for the best Hammers chance of the game, if you could call it that, it fell to Andre Ayew who saw a lame low shot come to nothing.

The two sides will replay the tie, at the London Stadium, later this month, let`s hope the Hammers put on a better performance.
