West Ham United duo Josh Cullen and Reece Burke both started for Bolton Wanderers last night.

Bolton Wanderers fans are absolutely raving about the performance of West Ham United loanees Reece Burke and Josh Cullen against Birmingham City last night.

Bolton held Birmingham to a credible 0-0 draw at St. Andrews, despite coming under a lot of pressure.

Burke and Cullen, who both arrived from West Ham on loan earlier this summer, were selected to start during the contest.

And Bolton fans have praised the duo’s showings, with the pair both standing out.

West Ham fans have been appealing for Slaven Bilic to give Cullen and Burke a chance in their first-team, but they have generally been sent out on loan.

Cullen has impressed on two temporary spells with Bradford City, while Burke has also enjoyed a loan stay with the Bantams.

If the pair continue to impress at Championship level, it seems only a matter of time before they break into West Ham’s first-team set-up.

Burke and Cullen are likely to be in action again this weekend, when Bolton take on Derby County.
