Squad To Face Plymouth

MATTY Etherington, Bobby Zamora and Sergei Rebrov all return to the squad for Saturday's Championship clash against Plymouth, boosting Alan Pardew's attacking options.

Etherington is in line to make his first appearance in six matches after recovering from a groin operation, while Rebrov and Zamora could both play some part on Saturday after missing the trip to Sheffield United last weekend.

Steve Lomas has completed a full week's training and having been an unused substitute at Bramall Lane could play for the first time since damaging his calf at Rotherham in December.

Absentees for the Plymouth game include Luke Chadwick, who will be out for four weeks with a torn hamstring, Gavin Williams (ankle) and Don Hutchison (knee).

Defender Christian Dailly has a torn thigh muscle and will be out for another three weeks, having recovered from the knee operation he had in September.

The team to face Plymouth Argyle will be chosen from the following squad:

Bywater (GK), Walker (GK), Repka, Mackay, Powell, Ferdinand, Mullins, Reo-Coker, Lomas, McClenahan, Fletcher, Noble, Harewood, Zamora, Sheringham, Cohen, Rebrov, Brevett, Ward, Etherington. 

West Ham United v Plymouth Argyle at Upton Park, kick-off 3.00pm
