Millwall striker John Marquis will be available.

The teenager has been playing on in recent weeks despite a hernia and has been pencilled in for an operation next month.

But the problem is not in danger of getting worse so Marquis is in line to face the Hammers.

Therry Racon and Shaun Batt are the Lions' only injury absentees and both could be back in training next week.

Former Charlton midfielder Racon has been out since suffering ankle ligament damage on his debut last month.

Striker Batt, who missed all of last season due to a cruciate injury, has been sidelined this term with a calf strain but is close to a long-awaited comeback.

West Ham will be without Frederic Piquionne.

The striker came on as a late substitute in last weekend's 4-3 win over Portsmouth but lasted only five minutes before he was sent off and begins a three-match ban.

Carlton Cole will once again lead the attack having scored in each of his last four appearances.

David Bentley could start after his first appearance as a substitute against Pompey while Sam Baldock, Papa Bouba Diop and Brian Montenegro are all pushing to make their debuts.

But a fifth recent signing, right-back Guy Demel, limped out of a reserve match in midweek with a tight hamstring and is a doubt.

Winger Gary O'Neil (ankle) is a long-term absentee.
