Nolan ready for return

Kevin Nolan is looking forward to having the chance of putting a difficult month behind him - starting with Tuesday night's visit of Manchester City in the Capital One Cup.

The Hammers skipper returns to Sam Allardyce's squad following a four-match suspension as his team look to restore some pride following a heavy first leg defeat.

Nolan believes a positive result on Tuesday could give West Ham the lift they need ahead of a run of crucial fixtures.

He said: "Tonight's game is the second leg of a semi-final after a disastrous first leg, but it is one we can go into full-throttle, have a good go and see if we can start building for a tough few months ahead.

"It would be nice to win tonight and start the ball rolling because too many teams have come to the Boleyn this season and got points that they shouldn't have.

"Compared to last season, when we only lost four times here, we don't want to get in the habit of losing home games.

"From now until the end of the season, home and away, we've got to be strong and resolute and make sure that we're together - characteristics we've got in abundance.

"From a personal point of view, it's been a tough couple of months as I've said previously, but hopefully now I can put that behind me and concentrate on what's ahead."

You can read the full interview with Kevin in Tuesday's Official Programme, available for £3.50 from sellers around the ground. The Programme can also be ordered online or viewed digitally - click here for full details.
