Hammers midfielder trains with team-mates
Scott Parker has today trained with his West Ham team-mates for the first time since suffering an Achilles injury.
The inspirational midfielder has missed the Hammers last four matches and although the east Londoners need a minor miracle to stay up, the improvement in his fitness will be a major boost to boss Avram Grant.
The player did train by himself towards the end of last week and the club will continue to monitor his progress but as yet do not know if he will be fit enough for Sunday’s clash with Wigan at the DW:Stadium.
Matthew Upson is likely to be fit enough for the match but the game does come too soon for Mark Noble.
The midfielder underwent a hernia operation last week after suffering the injury at Chelsea, but has begun training on his own and could yet feature this season.
The same can be said about Junior Stanislas who is also training after recovering from a hernia.
