Fry extends at Charlton

West Ham United youngster Matt Fry could be in line for an FA Cup showdown with Tottenham Hotspur after extending his loan spell at Charlton Athletic by a further month.

Defender Fry, 20, will now remain with the Addicks until 5 February and could be named in the starting XI for Sunday's FA Cup third-round tie at White Hart Lane.

The Academy product has been a regular starter this season and will hope to keep his place under caretaker manager Keith Peacock, who replaced Phil Parkinson at the helm earlier this week.

Peacock, West Ham fans may recall, served as a scout and later assistant manager to Alan Pardew and Alan Curbishley.
