West Ham United are set to face Doncaster Rovers in the FA Cup Fourth Round this Saturday after the Hammers beat Stockport County by one goal-to-nil thanks to a Craig Dawson header in the 80th minute.

Dawson rescued West Ham as they defeated non-league side Stockport. Substitute Jarrod Bowen took a quick corner before whipping the ball into the 18-yard-box, meeting Dawson's head, sending the Hammers into the next round.

Their opponents, Doncaster, have reached the fourth round for only the second time in the last 10 years. They started this year's competition against United of Manchester, winning 5-1. They then beat Carlisle United to face Blackburn Rovers in the Third Round. A Taylor Richards goal was the difference between the two sides. 

The Hammers have also struggled in the Cup since they left the Boleyn Ground in 2016. The East London club haven't made it past the fourth round, losing to lower league sides three years in a row.

David Moyes is expected to make a couple of changes to his starting XI for the FA Cup Third Round with a few players hoping for some needed minutes.

Predicted lineups

West Ham United: Randolph; Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Johnson; Noble, Rice; Yarmolenko, Lanzini, Benrahma; Odubeko.

Ones to watch

West Ham United - Manuel Lanzini

The central attacking midfielder has been playing under David Moyes on the left side of the pitch. The Argentine has only scored once this season, however, he hasn't had the opportunity to express himself. This cup game is the perfect chance for the midfielder.

Likely to start, Lanzini will look to create many opportunities and get on the score sheet for the Hammers. 

Doncaster Rovers - Fejiri Okenabirhie 

The striker has been at the centre of the Rovers' set-up. Okenabirhie has registered nine goals in 19 starts for Doncaster.  

In the Rovers' FA Cup run so far, the 24-year-old has scored once.  The goal came in the first round of the cup, scoring the first goal in the club's 5-1 win against United of Manchester.
