Obiang target game named

Pedro Obiang is hoping to be back in the Irons squad for the match against Leicester next month.

Manager David Moyes revealed today that the midfielder was closing in on a return to action with the early predictions being that he would be out until next season.

But we were told this evening that the backroom team – whilst never making firm predictions – are hopeful that he will be available for the the game against the Foxes.

The 25-year-old Spaniard suffered medial ligament damage during West Ham’s  FA Cup defeat at Wigan on January 27. His absence has been a big miss in midfield with the natural balance of the team having been upset as a result.

He underwent surgery to repair the medial collateral ligament, and the club and the medical staff are pleased with his progress.
