BBC pundit Michael Brown reacts as West Ham draw Kidderminster in FA Cup
West Ham will face Non-League side Kidderminster Harriers in the fourth round of the FA Cup after dumping out Leeds United.
Former Leeds midfielder Michael Brown was impressed with the draw on BBC Radio 5 Live, reacting to it after his old side were eliminated by the Hammers at the London Stadium on Sunday (9 January).
David Moyes’ side will fancy their chances of securing a place in the fifth round after the draw, but a cracker could be on the cards against Kidderminster.
Brown said: “When you look at Kidderminster vs West Ham, that will be incredible. It doesn’t disappoint does it!”
There are 115 league places between West Ham and the non-league outfit at the moment.
Both sides met in FA Cup fifth round in 1994, with the Irons running out 1-0 winners, and the minnows will be aiming for revenge.
Moyes will definitely be resting a lot of his senior players when they travel to 6400-capacity Aggborough Stadium next month.
Reading were dumped out by the National League side on Saturday, so they will fancy their chances of another giant-killing.
The Hammers will not be taking it lightly, though, and a mixture of youth and experience should be expected.
Should they book their place in the fifth round as expected, another kind draw could be on the cards given the number of teams still involved in action in the competition.
Should they get to the quarter-finals, West Ham will hope to do more than they did in the League Cup – where Tottenham Hotspur dumped them out of the last-eight.
Ending 2021-22 with silverware is the target for the Hammers, and their chances of doing so have been handed a boost in recent hours.
