Scamacca injury explained

West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca’s  injury at Fulham is not thought to be serious.

The 23 year old hobbled off after 10 minutes and afterwards coach Billy McKinlay explained that he had rolled his injury.

With Michial Antonio unable to play after feeling a problem in his thigh last night it left the hammers with Bowen up front as the emergency front man.

He didn’t let anybody down scoring the equaliser  in the 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage which ensured the Hammers completed their three mid winter friendlies unbeaten.

The last thing the Hammers need right now is another injury and McKinlay is hopeful all will be well with the No 7.

Mckinlay believed the Hammers had produced a decent performance particularly in the second half and commenting on Scamacca he said: “He rolled his ankle a little bit [so we took him off] and we’ll see how it looks over the next couple of days, but hopefully it’s won’t be too bad and we can get him back in as quick as we can.”

He added that Cambridge had been a good start for the squad and that we had a good game last week at Udinese too with obviously a good win and performance.

He said: ” Today was the perfect game for us to finish off that mini-preparation. We’ve got a good week coming up now before the Arsenal game and we’ll be ready to go.”
