Shane Long: Should recover from knee injury
Shane Long: Should recover from knee injury

Manager Steve Bruce is confident Republic of Ireland striker Shane Long will recover in time from a knee injury sustained in the 2-0 win over his old club West Brom on Saturday.

Centre back Curtis Davies is also battling a knee injury in the hope that he can attempt to combat the threat of Hammers striker Andy Carroll.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce will give winger Matt Jarvis every chance to feature.

The 27-year-old suffered a thigh injury towards the end of Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Manchester United, but Allardyce is hopeful he will be fit for the visit of Steve Bruce's Tigers.

Joey O'Brien (shoulder) and Marco Borriello (calf) remain absent for the Hammers while Allardyce also confirmed Ricardo Vaz Te is struggling for match fitness after returning to training.
