West Ham United chase an unprecedented fourth straight win in the Premier League when they visit struggling Fulham on Saturday.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men recorded a 3-2 win at home to Crystal Palace last weekend, but the Hammers had to come from behind to triumph.

Leyton Orient, meanwhile, will hope to avoid being victims on a famous FA Trophy shock on Saturday when they host Beaconsfield Town, who play seventh tier.

The O’s were beaten 1-0 at Boreham Wood in the Vanarama National League last weekend, though Justin Edinburgh’s side remain top.

Dagenham & Redbridge visit a familiar face in the FA Trophy as they come up against former boss Garry Hill, now in charge of Ebbsfleet United.

Peter Taylor’s men were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Halifax Town in the league last weekend, despite Daggers playing against 10 men for almost an hour.

All this, plus the latest from the Bostik Premier and below, is discussed on this week’s East London Football podcast.

Host Matt Withers is joined by Dave Evans, George Sessions and Ned Keating to chew over another week in east London football.
