Avram Grant will give fitness tests to several players before deciding on his line-up for the game.

West Ham (from): Green, Ben Haim, Tomkins, Upson, Gabbidon, Barrera, Stanislas, Kovac, Ilunga, Parker, Behrami, Dyer, McCarthy, Nouble, Spector, Boa Morte, Cole, Obinna, Piquionne, Sears, Reid, Faubert, Boffin.
