West Ham get injury boost

Kevin Nolan (0 caps)West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has skipper and midfielder Kevin Nolan available for the home game against West Brom.

Nolan has been one of the leading lights for the Hammers this season and they have missed his goals from the middle but a toe injury has kept him out of the side in recent weeks.

West Ham are also boosted by the return of midfielder Joe Cole, who has recovered from his hamstring injury, although fellow midfielder Mark Noble remains on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.

Defender George McCartney is also fit after nearly four months out with a knee problem, but back-up goalkeeper Raphael Spiegel (finger) is out so Stephen Henderson has been recalled from his loan at Ipswich and will be on the bench.
