                West Bromwich Albion  V  West Ham United






    3.00pm Saturday 30th April
    Venue The Hawthorns




    TEAM NEWS

    West Brom pair Ben Foster and Saido Berahino will be assessed after missing Monday night's draw at Tottenham with ankle injuries.
    Midfielder James Morrison is training again after a hamstring injury but is unlikely to feature.
    Youngsters Jonathan Leko and Tyler Roberts have been training with the first team and could be involved.
    West Ham have a fully-fit squad, meaning in-form forward Andy Carroll is set to start again for the Hammers.


    MOTD COMMENTATOR'S NOTES

    Simon Brotherton: "Having seen West Brom throw a large spanner in Tottenham's title challenge works, West Ham will know their opponents aren't in beach mode yet.
    "The Hammers need the points to strengthen their hold on sixth place, which would give them a spot in the Europa League.
    "Liverpool and Southampton are breathing down their neck and although seventh place might still be enough should Manchester United win the FA Cup, Slaven Bilic is understandably keen for his side to keep matters in their own hands.
    "West Ham's form is by far the better of the two; they're unbeaten in nine, while West Brom are looking for a first win in seven."


    WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY

    West Brom head coach Tony Pulis: "West Ham have had a wonderful season. They have signed some good players and Slaven (Bilic) is a good manager.
    "He has come back to England, knows the scene, and taken the bull by the horns."
    West Ham manager Slaven Bilic: "The top six is a target and it has been a target for quite a while now. It wasn't a target at the beginning of the season but with four games to go we have a little bit of a gap, but we can't afford to lose games.
    "It's going to be hard but we are unbeaten in a long time, we have had a good run and we are fully motivated. If we continue to play like we have been playing, we have a good chance."


    LAWRO'S PREDICTION

    West Brom ended a run of three straight defeats with a draw against Tottenham on Monday.
    Tony Pulis' side never seem to have to wait too long to pick up a point - and when they get one decent result they tend to get two or three on the bounce.
    Lawro's prediction: 2-1

    West Brom 6 match winless run, scoring just twice, their last two home matches ending in 1-0 defeats......Whereas we are unbeaten in 9 league games clocking up 15 goals and four successive away games without defeat.   

    Hmmmm, so that's a home win on the cards.  No wait, that was then, this is now and could all be different....What I'm trying to say is that I can't call it today   confu

    But ......... C O Y I    scarf

    Bit lucky to still be level at the minute. All over the place defensively early on.

    Much more professional second half. Played some great stuff, cracking 3rd goal from Nobes, popped it about for fun.

    Aye, bit of a slow start, but you have to feel your way in Daz ... and they did, with style in the end.

    I enjoyed the game, the Noble and Kouyate show and as you say the captain's 2nd was a peach. We certainly showed the Squirts how it's done......Haha "Are you watching at the Lane?"

    3 games left and 9 points to collect - COYI!   WH Flag
