Gold knows West Ham keeper Green facing Dempsey test

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold knows Robert Green faces a mental test against Fulham this weekend.

A striker shortage at Fulham means that Green could come face to face with Clint Dempsey this weekend for the first time since the American struck the tame shot which he failed to handle in South Africa.

Green's error has caused him to be the subject of heckling from opposition fans ever since his return from the World Cup, but Gold is confident that his goalkeeper will be able to handle the pressure upon him at Upton Park on Saturday.

"I have no doubt in my mind that he will deal with it with absolute consummate professionalism," Gold said.

"It won't even enter his mind. He will prepare like he normally does and I'm sure he will give another outstanding performance when called upon."
