China challenge excites Specs
Jonathan Spector will hope to make his first start of pre-season on Friday with the high-profile match in the Barclays Asia Trophy against Beijing Guoan.
The United States defender could figure from kick-off having come off the bench late on in the 1-0 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday. The host club will be as eager as the Hammers to secure a victory, having lost on penalties to Hull City. A capacity crowd of 60,000-plus is likely to be in the Beijing Workers Stadium and temperatures will once again be in the high 30s.
