No Noble for Hammers
West Ham United,
Mark Noble will be missing when West Ham travel to Barnsley.
The seven-goal midfielder suffered a thigh strain during the first half of last Saturday's 4-2 defeat by Reading and is likely to be ruled out for a couple of weeks. But boss Sam Allardyce can call on Papa Bouba Diop to step in after the Senegal international proved his fitness with a run-out for the reserves this week following two and a half months out with a hamstring injury. Defenders Winston Reid (concussion) and Guy Demel (thigh) are also available after their recent spells on the sidelines. Winger Ricardo Vaz Te returns to Oakwell for the first time since leaving Barnsley to join the Hammers in January.
