Alan Catches 22

David Connolly, Tomas Repka, Brian Deane and Rufus Brevett are added to the squad for the trip to Wigan - boosting the squad to 22 players.

David and Tomas return from a one match and three match ban respectively, Brian returns after a foot injury that ruled him out against Watford, while Rufus makes the squad for the first time since August after having foot problems himself.

With Wigan's Jason Roberts suspended, and their central midfield players having only scored three between them this season, Paul Jewell is weighing up his options with Jason Jarrett returning from a one game ban.

Any West Ham player sent off on Sunday would miss the play-off final if that is reached; and anyone sent off in a playoff game would miss the very next match.

SQUAD: Bywater, Srnicek, Melville, Dailly, Lomas, Hutchison, Carrick, Ferdinand, Reo-Coker, Mullins, Horlock, McAnuff, Nowland, Etherington, Deane, Zamora, Harewood, Cohen.
