Fans at Olympic Stadium will guide West Ham to Europa League win – Byram

West Ham United full-back Sam Byram is confident that the home crowd at the Hammers' new home Olympic Stadium will help them turn around their deficit in the Europa League qualifier against NK Domzale.

Slaven Bilic's Hammers suffered a 2-1 defeat to the Slovenian minnows in the first leg of the qualifier last week and will now try to overturn the disadvantage on their debut in their new home on Thursday.

"Obviously we are disappointed to lose the first [leg] but we are going to be going into the new stadium," he told the Daily Mirror.

"With the crowd behind us it will help us.

"We will have another week's training and a lot of things to work on but we will be going into the match full of energy and we are really looking forward to it."
