Fulham 0 West Ham 0
MISSED chances cost the senior team dearly on Sunday, and they also prevented the Academy boys from collecting all three points at Fulham on Saturday morning - though they did come away with a goalless draw.
Danny Subuola and Cristian Montano came closest to breaking the deadlock for the under-18 team, but they were indebted to goalkeeper Adam Street, who made two excellent saves to keep Fulham at bay and stretch their unbeaten run to five games.
Academy director Tony Carr was pleased with his side's performance against more experienced opponents.

"It was a game of missed chances which either side could have won," he insisted. "We edged the game in terms of possession and chances, particularly before half time, but we didn't manage to take advantage."
West Ham now face Chelsea, who visit Little Heath on Saturday morning.

MEANWHILE, two of West Ham's younger Academy members were making a name for themselves in the England under-16 team as they made it two wins out of two in the Victory Shield international competition.
Northern Ireland crashed to a 2-0 defeat against England at the Deva Stadium in Chester on Friday night and it was Hammers Matthias Fanimo and Blair Turgott who did the damage.
Turgott scored on his international debut after being put in by Fanimo, and the latter then wrapped up the win in the closing stages with a goal of his own.
The pair will hope to get the nod for England again when they meet Scotland in the Victory Shield decider on November 26 in Edinburgh.
