West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has no fresh injury concerns as he prepares his side to face Stoke on Saturday.

Allardyce has no fresh concerns

Andy Carroll is in line to return to the starting line-up for the first time since his sending off in the 2-0 win over Swansea although fellow forward Marco Borriello remains sidelined with a calf injury.

Joey O'Brien (shoulder) is a long-term absentee while Antonio Nocerino is still looking to make his first Hammers start with full-back Pablo Armero yet to feature since joining in January.

Jon Walters is sidelined along with Stoke team-mate Charlie Adam due to suspension.

Both forward Walters and midfielder Adam are serving three-match bans, with the former's beginning this weekend after an appeal against his red card in last Saturday's 1-1 draw at Norwich failed.

Manager Mark Hughes, who is thinking of using a different formation, will make a late call on whether on-loan Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi (knee) is ready to return to action, and has confirmed defender Robert Huth (knee) will miss the rest of the season.
