New Jarrod Bowen optimism

The Hammers are now hopeful that the central striker will miss only the Third Round FA Cup replay games against Bristol City next Tuesday and the Premier League away match at Sheffield United the following weekend.

With 14 goals this season it could hardly be better news for an Irons squad which has been hit by injury, sickness and absences via the Afcon competition.

Bowen’s spell on the side lines was cause after he twisted his ankle in the match against Bristol City and initially it was impossible to take a scan because his ankle was so badly swollen.

Since then, however, the scan has been take and although it was thought he would be out for 21 days and now appears he is likely to make a much quicker recovery

The London Evening Standard – with top links to the club – say  West Ham are ‘optimistic’ that Bowen’s injury is not as serious as first feared and there is ‘hope’ within the club that he will only be absent for a short period.

The report claims that Bowen will be out for the game against Bristol City and West Ham are hopeful that the match against Sheffield United is the only Premier League fixture he will miss.
