West Ham vs Portsmouth - Hammers to Rest Players

With West Ham progressing to the FA Cup quarter finals and now set to play four games in nine days (including the two already played against Bolton) Pardew's decision to rest players on Saturday has been justified. West Ham were heavily defeated by Bolton on Saturday but it is obvious that Pardew prioritised last night's game and banked on a home win against struggling Portsmouth on Saturday.

However with West Ham having to play extra time last night and Pardew reporting today that, "Four players suffered from cramp and I have got some guys struggling in the changing room" the Hammers will also probably have to rest players in the Portsmouth game.
