West Ham winger Nathan Holland put in another excellent display for the Under 23s in the 2-2 draw against Brentford B yesterday.
The 21-year-old scored the second equaliser running down the left-hand side of the pitch, beating a couple of players before curling in an effort into the top right-hand corner of the goal.
Supporters on Twitter were very impressed by Holland’s performance and are hoping that the wide man is given a few more chances by first-team manager Manuel Pellegrini:
Surely his time is coming

Could we see him against Newport next week?

With Felipe Anderson and Manuel Lanzini both preferring to play off the left-wing, it’s hard to see where Holland would fit into the Hammers’ starting line up at the moment.
There is a chance that the winger could be given his chance against Newport in the Carabao Cup later this month, but it looks more likely that he’ll have to go out on loan and make a name for himself away from the London Stadium.
