Fellow centre-back Danny Gabbidon, fully fit after an abdominal injury, should take the place of the England international at the heart of the defence, with midfielder Scott Parker taking over the captain's armband.

Forward Alessandro Diamanti is still out with a hip problem, but James Tomkins and Mark Noble have been declared fit by manager Gianfranco Zola.

Winger Kieron Dyer has returned to fitness after a hamstring injury and played for the reserves on Tuesday, but is unlikely to feature at Upton Park on Saturday.

West Ham (from): Green, Kurucz, Faubert, Da Costa, Gabbidon, Daprela, Tomkins, Ilunga, Spector, Noble, Parker, Behrami, Collison, Payne, Jimenez, Dyer, Cole, Hines, Stanislas, Franco.
