David Moyes delivers huge quadruple West Ham boost for Nottingham Forest including positive Craig Dawson update

Hammers boss David Moyes has delivered a huge quadruple West Ham boost for Nottingham Forest including a positive Craig Dawson update.

West Ham face Nottingham Forest in their first away game of the new season on Sunday.

And there is already a bit of needle brewing between the Hammers and newly-promoted Forest off the back of the Jesse Lingard saga.

Both West Ham and Forest got the season off to a bad start with equally lacklustre performances in 2-0 defeats to Man City and Newcastle respectively.

Steve Cooper has signed almost an entirely new team since Forest were promoted.

West Ham boss Moyes is in the middle of a sizeable rebuild himself with five signings and likely another four or five needed before the window closes.

The Hammers know they will have to be much better to get off the mark for the season when they face a pumped up City Ground crowd relishing their first home game back in the top flight.

And there is some seriously welcome good news for the Hammers from their manager ahead of the game.

Because Moyes has delivered a huge quadruple West Ham boost for Nottingham Forest including a positive Craig Dawson update.

Dawson was a doubt after picking up an injury against Lens and missing the defeat to City.

But speaking in his pre-match press conference Moyes has suggested Big Daws could be back for Forest.

Not only that but Michail Antonio, who also had a knock, is fine too while the boss confirmed new signings Maxwel Cornet and Gianluca Scamacca are both fit to START at the City Ground.

“Yes, I think they’re ready to start,” Moyes said about Cornet and Scamacca (whufc.com). 

“I think it’s just a decision if we’re ready to play them yet.

“They’re getting much closer to it, that’s for sure, now they’ve had a few weeks training.

“It’ll be a similar group to last week. Craig Dawson is doing quite well so we’ll see where he is.

“We have Angelo Ogbonna working his way back from a cruciate too.

“Lukasz had a knock last week and Micky Antonio had a knock too, but he’s trained today.”

Fantastic news from Moyes let’s hope the Hammers can take advantage and get their season up and running against Lingard and the gang.
