West Ham boss David Moyes will have to draft in one of his second string players to replace a key first-team star for our clash vs Wolves on Saturday.

Such is the strength of the Hammers squad now though, and the close bond between manager, players and fans, that losing one of our key men isn’t as worrying as it used to be.

Moyes has plenty of players just outside the starting XI all raring to go and come in if need be.

One of them will be used for West Ham vs Wolves.

West Ham vs Wolves: Big change at the back but we’ll be just fine

West Ham centre-back Angelo Ogbonna is out of action, probably for the rest of the season, after rupturing his ACL against Liverpool just under two weeks ago.

And it seems as though Craig Dawson will be the man to come in and replace the Italian at Molineux according to Claret and Hugh.

The 31-year-old has been ever reliable for the Hammers since moving to the London Stadium back in October 2020.

Dawson has far exceeded expectations, proved a lot of people wrong and has generally been an all-round pleasant surprise.

He has been great for West Ham this season aside from a shaky performance on the opening weekend of the season away at Newcastle.

Dawson was exceptional against Liverpool when he came on to replace Oggy.

The former Watford and West Brom defender always plays with his heart on his sleeve. He gives nothing less than 100% and never lets anyone down.

We have absolutely no worries about Dawson filling in for Ogbonna against Wolves.

Those who don’t rate Dawson clearly have an agenda against him.

The 31-year-old is a superb squad player and is an incredibly reliable backup option for Moyes to utilise.
