West Ham welcome back Joey O'Brien for Wigan clash
Friday 26 October 2012
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce will welcome defender Joey O'Brien back into the squad for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash at Wigan.
The 26-year-old suffered a hamstring injury during the Hammers' 2-1 win at QPR at the start of the month and his return will ease Allardyce's defensive worries.
Matthew Taylor (calf) and Guy Demel (thigh) could return to first-team action shortly, but Allardyce will have to wait longer for both Ricardo Vaz Te (shoulder) and Jack Collison (knee), whose injuries are more long term.
Provisional Squad: Jaaskelainen, Spiegel, O'Brien, Reid, Collins, Tomkins, McCartney, Noble, Diame, Nolan, Jarvis, Benayoun, Diarra, O'Neil, Maiga, Cole, Carroll, Spence.
