Parker Injury Setback
There were rumours that Scott Parker was to have started for West Ham reserves this week, so it was a bit of a surprise when he wasn't named in the squad. According to Setanta the reason was that Parker has suffered another injury setback. Parker's comeback in now not expected until the start of November.
Parker's midfield colleague Nigel Quashie however did manage to complete the game and is now available for selection for the first team.
