West Ham vs Doncaster build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
David Moyes has got the Hammers firing on all cylinders since the festive period, with the east Londoners enjoying their highest points tally in the first half of a season since the Premier League’s inception in 1992, but fans would love nothing more than a run in this competition to end a 51-year wait for FA Cup glory.
Doncaster, likewise, have been in good nick recently, with Darren Moore masterminding wins over FC United, Carlisle and Championship side Blackburn Rovers to reach this stage, while in League One, Donny have won six of their last seven matches and sit just three points adrift of front-runners Hull with two games in hand.
- West Ham (vs West Brom): Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice, Lanzini, Bowen, Benrahma; Antonio.
- Doncaster (vs Rochdale): Balcombe; Halliday, Anderson, Butler, John; Smith, Greaves, Richards, Taylor, Simoes; Okenabirhie.
The only main injury concern for Moyes is that to Arthur Masuaku, who remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury. For Donny, Reece James returns from suspension, but Moore will travel to the capital without Arsenal loanee Tyreece John-Jules, as well as James Coppinger and Madger Gomes.

Players to watch:
- West Ham: A congested schedule will likely mean a shuffling of the pack for Moyes, which could see Mark Noble given the nod in midfield. The club captain has largely sat on the periphery this term after 13 successive years of consistent first-team involvement, but Moyes has still afforded the ageing midfielder a starting role at various stages, and this weekend will likely be another. He doesn’t possess the athleticism or engine of his midfield teammates Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek, but he remains a tidy player in possession and an unyielding leader on the turf; his voice remains invaluable to everyone at the club and his aura transcends the performances he produces on the pitch. Few would dream of a cup run more than Noble himself.
- Doncaster: If Moore is to take down a higher tier opposition for the second time in the FA Cup this season then he will need his best players available to him, making Reece James’ return to the first team crucial. The versatile defender-cum-midfielder missed the previous outing through suspension as Doncaster came through a stern Rochdale test, winning 1-0 on home soil, but he will likely be restored to the XI at the London Stadium and could have a huge say on the outcome of this contest. Whether deployed in defence, on the wing or in midfield, James has been a key cog in Moore’s system this term, scoring five goals in League One, and will be relishing the chance to take on an in-form Premier League side.
