Squad To Face West Brom

ALAN Pardew has named a strong squad for the visit of West Brom to Upton Park on Saturday, kick-off 3.00pm.

Pards' only injury concerns are in goal, where Roy Carroll is still absent after injuring his knee in training and Jimmy Walker continues his rehabilitation from a cruciate knee ligamet operation.

After missing the defeat at Liverpool with a hamstring injury, Bobby Zamora returns to the squad, as does Mark Noble who returned from a back problem to play in the Reserves' 1-0 win over Norwich City in midweek.

Nigel Reo-Coker suffered from bone bruising during the week, but he is fit to be included, as is Matty Etherington who missed training on Thursday with a tight groin.

Jeremie Aliadiere came through 45 minutes of the Reserve match at Upton Park and is also fit to be included.

The team against West Brom will be chosen from the following squad:

Hislop (GK), Bywater (GK), Etherington, Mullins, Gabbidon, Repka, Reo-Coker, Ward, Collins, Dailly, Bellion, Aliadiere, Newton, Ferdinand, Harewood, Zamora, Konchesky, Sheringham, Noble, Benayoun, Williams, Clarke, Fletcher.

West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion at Upton Park, kick-off 3.00pm.
