Liam Ridgewell: Set to return from injury for this weekend's clash against N

The 28-year-old should be available for selection after a groin problem, but striker Peter Odemwingie is a doubt due to a knee injury that kept him out of the 2-1 defeat against Arsenal on April 6.

Manager Steve Clarke otherwise has a full squad to choose from, with Steven Reid also returning to the side after injury.

"Liam Ridgewell picked up a little bit of a knock in training," Clarke told the club's website.

"He felt a tightness in his groin the other day so we took him out but we're still hopeful for the weekend."

Meanwhile, Clarke insists that the future of Zoltan Gera, Marc-Antoine Fortune and Jerome Thomas, who are all out of contract at the end of the season, will not be determined by the remaining six fixtures.

"Nobody's future will be decided on the final six games. Futures will be decided on what players have done for the club previously and how we see the club going forward."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
