WEST HAM'S reward for their FA Youth Cup victory over Plymouth last week is a home clash with London neighbours QPR.
Danny Purdy scored the extra-time winner at Home Park after a long and arduous night that finally saw the youngsters return to Upton Park at around 5am!
The fourth round tie must be played on or before January 16.
Consequently, all those involved were rested for Saturday's Little Heath clash with Portsmouth where a fledgling side lost 5-3 after a ding-dong battle.
Danny Potts, son of West Ham legend Steve, played his first game for the under-18s, while there were also starts for England under-16 duo Matthias Fanimo and Blair Turgott.
It was Fanimo who levelled the scores with a 25-yard strike, but West Ham then felt the Pompey force as they went 4-1 behind.
