Reid Hull recall on the cards!

WinstonWest Ham United are set to recall Winston Reid to the heart of their defence for the crucial clash against Hull City on Wednesday evening.

James Tomkins is battling an ankle injury picked up in a clash with Manchester United’s Maroune Fellaini during the Saturday evening clash between the two sides.

Sam Allardyce is now faced with as important a decision for a game as big as any the team has played this season.

Defeat would see them – after winning four games on the trot – manage to provide the same number of consecutive losses.

And sources inside the club believe the manager may have to dispense with his usual “safety first – keep a clean sheet mantra” and perhaps go with pacy overlapping wing back, Colombian international Pablo Armero.

An Upton Park source  said: “We need to show a lot more adventure against City  than we managed against United. I think there will be offensive changes.”
