West Ham boss Grant delighted with rookie strike-force in Cup win

West Ham United boss Avram Grant was delighted with his rookie strike-force in their FA Cup victory over Barnsley.

Grant fielded 19-year-old Frank Nouble and the 21-year-old Zavon Hines in attack.

He told whufc.com: "They were very good, especially in the first half and if we had taken 20 per cent of our chances the score would have been high. I am pleased overall to be in the next round and that we could give a chance to some new players.

"The young players showed good movement and created strong chances. We played in a quick way, the way I like with good passing."
