Squad To Face Preston

HAMMERS are without Anton Ferdinand, Mark Noble and Sergei Rebrov for tomorrow's Championship clash with Preston, but Gavin Williams, who bagged his first goal for the Club against Leeds last weekend, is included in the squad.

Ferdinand, who pulled a hamstring at Elland Road, and Noble, who suffered a similar injury against Plymouth, could both return for next weekend's trip to Reading.

Rebrov (calf) is expected to be out for another two weeks, as is Christian Dailly (thigh), while Don Hutchison (knee) is a long-term casualty.

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

Bywater (GK), Walker (GK), Lomas, Powell, Mullins, Mackay, Repka, Reo-Coker, Williams, Fletcher, Etherington, Harewood, Zamora, Sheringham, Cohen, Blewitt, Ward, McClenahan, Ephraim.

West Ham United v Preston North End, at Upton Park, kick-off 3.00pm.
