West Ham threw four “hammers” and hopes for Europe – Coventry in the quarter-finals of the Cup

by

West Ham are still hoping to qualify for next season’s European competitions. The “hammers” defeated Brentford 4-2 at the Olympic Stadium in London in the match that “dropped the curtain” on the 26th game of the Premier League and reduced to -5 from sixth-placed Manchester United and -8 from fifth-placed Tottenham, with all the teams that will finish in the top seven of the final standings have chances for European presence next season.

For their part, the “bees” just stayed at +5 from the relegation places.

The Europa Conference league holders led 2-1 at half-time with goals from Bowen in the 5th and 7th minutes before Moppe reduced the deficit in the 13th minute. In the replay, David Moges’ men made it 4-1 with Bowen in the 63rd minute and Emerson in the 69th minute, with Ouisa in the 82nd minute shaping the final score.

Coventry qualified for the “8” of the Cup. The “blue skies” comfortably defeated Maidstone at home 5-0 for the “16” of the competition and got the “ticket” for the quarter-finals of the oldest institution.

The scorers of last year’s Championship finalists were Sims in the 9′, 14′ and 35′ and Tavares in the 88′ and 92′.
