Reid and Carew latest casualties on long list

West Ham find themselves hit with an increasing injury list heading into Saturday’s trip to Hull, with Winston Reid and John Carew the latest 
casualties.

New Zealand international Reid dislocated his shoulder during the Hammers’ 0-0 draw with Bristol City and is expected to be out for up to six weeks.

Meanwhile, Norwegian striker Carew injured his knee during training and was due to see a specialist yesterday (Wednesday) to discover the extent of the damage.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce was already without Henri Lansbury, David Bentley and Matt Taylor for the trip to the KC Stadium, and the Hammers boss hinted that he may look to the loan market for possible recruits.

“Winston has been to hospital and the dislocated shoulder has been put back into place,” he said.

“So it will be another search in the loan market to see if we can find a quality player that will help us with numbers at the moment.

“I don’t know if (Carew) will be back (for the Hull game).

“It is a knee problem that has occured which is a concern again.”

If Carew fails to recover, then it is expected that Carlton Cole will start up front for the Hammers on Saturday.
