West Ham without Andy Carroll for Norwich clash
Friday 14 September 2012
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is without new striker Andy Carroll for his side's Barclays Premier League clash with Norwich.
Carroll, signed on loan from Liverpool, suffered a hamstring injury on his debut and is likely to be replaced in the starting line-up by Carlton Cole.
Fellow loan signing Yossi Benayoun could make his second debut for the Hammers after joining from Chelsea for the rest of the season.
Jack Collison (knee) is the only other absentee for Allardyce as Matt Jarvis has started training again following a thigh injury that ruled him out over the win over Fulham two weeks ago.
Provisional squad: Jaaskelainen, Henderson, Demel, Tomkins, Collins, Reid, McCartney, O'Brien, Potts, Spence, Diarra, Diame, Noble, Taylor, O'Neil, Nolan, Jarvis, Benayoun, Hall, Vaz Te, Maiga, Cole.
