Nathan Trott conceded a goal for the first time in five matches as West Ham United’s Under 23’s could not continue their good end-of-season form as they went down 1-0 at an experienced Derby County side in Premier League 2 action.
Jayden Bogle’s early second half strike was enough to separate the two sides at the hosts’ Training Centre and condemn Terry Westley’s Hammers to a first defeat in over a month.
Following wins on the road at Manchester City and Everton coming into the clash, the Hammers were in a confident mood however they started slowly against Darren Wassall’s team, which contained the likes of George Thorne, Richard Keogh and Jamie Hanson.
Derby were first to put the pressure on and tested Trott ten minutes in when experienced defender Keogh volleyed straight at the stopper from a corner.
Nine minutes later, the visitors had their first attempt on goal, and it was a good one. Marcus Browne, fresh off the back of his four goal haul at Everton last week, cut in from the right-hand-side but was denied by Rams stopper Jonathan Mitchell.
Keogh - playing as a defensive midfielder - was soon at it again, with Trott on hand to save a second time from a low 20-yard drive.
After the restart, there was the goal that Derby looked close to scoring as Bogle made it 1-0. A long ball over the top was misjudged by substitute Ajibola Alese and County’s Alex Babos was able to turn and lay-off for the full-back who charged into the box before finishing easily past Trott.
