Simon Davey is looking forward to the Reds trip to Upton Park.

Talking to the clubs website, Davey said: "It is always nice to have the opportunity to pit your wits against one of the biggest clubs in the county so it is one we can really look forward to. "Hopefully we can repeat last season's feat but it is a good draw and we can look forward to playing against one of the biggest teams in one of the biggest stadiums".

The Hammers may feel that 90 minutes against the Reds is just a mere formality, but current form favours Barnsley.

In the last 10 games, West Ham have only won 3 games and have conceded 14 goals (having scored just 9 times themselves). Barnsley on the other hand have only lost 3 times, having converted 17 goals over the same period.

On the West Ham United Blog, it states: "We have been drawn at home to Barnsley in the FA Cup third round. It's not Sheffield United as we had hoped but as openers go, we should be going through to the next round with this fairly easy tie".

Folks, over the next couple of weeks, whilst you are on your field trips to Liverpool and Chelsea, just take a moment to speak to those in the know. Barnsley FC may be a Championship club, but they have humbled bigger teams than you before!
