Squad To Face Leicester

MATTY Etherington and Malky Mackay are both out of tonight's match with Leicester at Upton Park, but Gavin Williams is included in the squad after recovering from the ankle injury he picked up against Crewe.

Etherington jarred his knee in the 1-1 draw earlier in the week and had to come off just before half-time, but the midfielder is hopeful of returning for Hammers trip to Wigan. Mackay missed the Crewe game with a calf injury.

Christian Dailly is still out with a thigh injury but is also expected to be involved against Wigan, while Don Hutchison is out with a knee injury.

Anton Ferdinand is fully-fit and is expected to partner Elliott Ward in defence after suffering no reaction to his hamstring problem. Striker Sergei Rebrov is also included in the squad after missing the last five games with a calf problem.

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

Bywater (GK), Walker (GK), Lomas, Mullins, Powell, Cohen, Reo-Coker, Chadwick, Williams, McClenahan, Fletcher, Ferdinand, Harewood, Zamora, Sheringham, Newton, Noble, Ward, Rebrov.
