Colchester United manager, Kevin Keen, did not hesitate when asked which club he would like to face in round four of the FA Cup, following Saturday’s 2-1 win over Championship strugglers Charlton Athletic.

“There’s only one name I want – West Ham!” insisted Keen.

“They beat Wolves 1-0, so that would be the dream draw for me. You asked me, and I’ve told you.”

Keen played 279 games for the Hammers, as a midfielder, between 1983 and 1993, including playing in an FA Cup semi-final in 1991 when the Londoners were a second tier club.

First-half goals from George Moncur and Marvin Sordell booked the U’s a place in round four – the draw is this evening.

“It’s my first-ever win as manager, so it’s special, so special,” continued Keen.

“And I’m so proud of the boys.”
