Team News: Captain Nigel Reo-Coker is available
for selection after missing Saturday's trip to Bolton through
illness, while Carl Fletcher and Clive Clarke are also added to
Alan Pardew's squad.
Squad to face Bolton: Hislop, Bywater, Scaloni, Dailly, Ferdinand, Gabbidon, Collins, Ward, Konchesky, Clarke, Benayoun, Newton, Mullins, Reo-Coker, Fletcher, Etherington, Sheringham, Ashton, Harewood, Zamora, Katan.
Bolton, meanwhile, have Bruno N'Gotty, Abdoulaye Faye and El-Hadji Diouf available again after injury and illness, while striker Henrik Pedersen could be in line for a more prominent role after his stunning goal at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday.
Previous meetings: Tonight's match will be the fifth time we have faced Bolton Wanderers this season, following our 2-1 Premiership defeat at Upton Park in August, the 1-0 Carling Cup third round defeat away in October, and the two most recent trips to the Reebok Stadium - a 0-0 draw in the FA Cup fifth round that set up tonight's reply and Saturday's 4-1 Premiership defeat, which ended a run of nine matches unbeaten for Alan Pardew's team.
Our last home victory against Bolton came on the final day of the 2001-02 campaign, when goals from Steve Lomas and Ian Pearce sealed a 2-1 triumph and ensured Hammers a seventh-place finish in Glenn Roeder's first season as manager.
Our most recent FA Cup encounter at Upton Park came way back in January 1977, when strikes from Billy Jennings and Geoff Pike - his first-ever goal for the Club - earned Hammers a 2-1 win in the third round.
