Squad To Face Villa

ALAN Pardew has no new injury worries ahead of tonight's clash with Aston Villa live on Sky Sports.

All Hammers international combatants have returned to Upton Park fit for the visit of David O'Leary's side, while Jeremie Aliadiere has shaken off a knock he picked up in the Reserves to be included in the squad.

Matty Etherington has overcome the bout of food poisoning that affected him during the defeat to Bolton, while Roy Carroll has overcome the back problem that forced him to return from duty with Northern Ireland.

Hammers only injury problems are the long-term absences of David Bellion, who is entering the final stages of his recovery from a broken leg, and cruciate knee ligament victim Jimmy Walker.

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

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