Duo out for Hammers
West Ham United,
Sam Allardyce is likely to be without James Tomkins and George McCartney for Saturday's clash with Newcastle at the Boleyn.
Tomkins has a calf injury and McCartney has a knee problem, meaning both are unlikely to feature against Alan Pardew's relegation-threatened side but those apart Allardyce has, baring any late setbacks, a clean bill of health.
Andy Carroll will continue in attack and the Hammers boss will be looking for the east Londoners to continue their fine home form and at the same time add to the relegation worries of his former club.
