Reserves In Action

The reserves are in action on Wednesday night against a Fredi Kanoute-less Spurs at Upton Park on Wednesday evening following a pitch inspection that confirms the match goes ahead.

The worry is that a downpour just before the match could make the pitch cut up during the game, meaning the ground staff will have their work cut out to prepare the pitch for Saturday's match with Wigan, but the game will definitely will be played.

It had been hoped that Fredi would be making his comeback in the game following an ankle injury - and he had even been reported in some quarters as a definite to play.

"But another West Ham old boy, Chris Hughton, confirmed that he was not ready to play just yet.

Steve Bywater, Shaun Byrne and Richard Garcia, who were both on the bench at Wimbledon on Tuesday night, are all involved.

TEAM: Bywater, McLenehan, Tattam, Byrne, Lumsden, Blewitt, Sofiane, Noble D, Garcia, Pearson, McMahon.

Subs: Bunce, Forde, Noble M, Laws, Wright.
