Defoe Out of West Ham Game
The biggest news ahead of tomorrow's clash is that Jermain Defoe will not be playing for 'family reasons'. Defoe, who was cup-tied for Portsmouth's FA cup semi-final game, has scored eight goals in seven games since joining the south coast side and would surely have relished extending that record against one of his previous clubs.
Hand-ball expert Milan Baros is also rated as doubtful for the game.
Sears, Zamora, McCartney and McCartney have all been back in training and are in contention for West Ham. Matthew Upson was in training over the weekend but tomorrow's game is probably too soon for him to feature. Spector will probably deputise in defence but Tomkins must also be in contention.
