Nathan Trott impressed for AFC Wimbledon as they beat Portsmouth 1-0, helping them move within one point of getting out of the relegation zone.
Can West Ham make the top six?
The young goalkeeper’s performance was a match-winning one, as he made nine saves throughout the game, eight of which he caught, as per WhoScored.
West Ham United covered this showing in the loan watch they tweeted out on Monday:

Many fans have responded to this tweet demanding that the club recalls the 20-year-old, with some suggesting he should be in the team ahead of Roberto.
This comes with the England youth international having averaged 4.4 saves per game in a Wimbledon shirt, while there may also be inspiration from Aaron Ramsdale, who has become AFC Bournemouth’s number 1 after a loan at Wimbledon, starting all eight of the Cherries’ Premier League games this season.
There are many who want to see Trott given a chance, feeling he could do a job in Lukasz Fabianski’s absence, while they also believe he could benefit from the experience.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the update, including posts from enthused West Ham fans, can be seen below:
After all the hype he was receiving last season and with Adrian leaving I felt that possibly he was going to be 2nd choice this season and although a risk may have been worth a shot, oh well.

Get him back. I’m convinced Roberto isn’t a professional footballer

Recall him and put him straight in the first team before the season is already over
