Match Preview

Sky Blues set for injury boost Coventry hope to welcome back as many as five players for the visit of West Ham as second bottom meets second in the Championship. Defenders James McPake, Richard Wood, Chris Hussey and Martin Cranie all stand a strong chance of being in contention while young midfielder Gael Bigirimana is available once again having completed his three-match suspension. McPake hobbled off in City`s last match before the international break, a 4-2 home defeat to Southampton, but was given the all-clear to return to training while Wood (calf) was withdrawn on the morning on the clash but appears to have recovered. Full-back Hussey (foot) has missed the last two games while Cranie (ribs) hopes to return after seven weeks out, although a place in manager Andy Thorn`s starting XI so soon could be unlikely for the former Portsmouth man. Coventry do have some injury problems, however, with striker Roy O`Donovan nursing a broken foot while midfielder David Bell will be assessed having sustained a knock in training. Joey O'Brien and Guy Demel will boost West Ham's injury-hit squad. O'Brien missed the 2-0 win at Hull a fortnight ago with a hamstring injury but was able to resume training this week. Fellow full-back Demel is finally pushing to make his debut having been struggling with a hamstring problem since joining from Hamburg in August. The Ivory Coast international has played in two reserve matches over the past couple of weeks to prove his fitness. Midfielder Matt Taylor is also close to returning from a calf injury and will be checked over. But the Hammers are still without defender Winston Reid (shoulder), winger Gary O'Neil (ankle) and on-loan midfield duo Henri Lansbury and David Bentley (both knee).

Match Report

Hammers too strong for Sky Blues West Ham staged a second-half comeback to avoid an upset at struggling Coventry in a thrilling npower Championship clash at the Ricoh Arena which ended 2-1. The promotion-chasing Hammers, backed by over 6,300 travelling supporters - their largest following since 2004 - were seriously tested in an entertaining, albeit occasionally niggly, encounter which was much closer than the second-tier table would have suggested. City, second-bottom with only two wins to their name all season, took a deserved lead into half-time courtesy of Clive Platt`s well-taken turn and finish. Carlton Cole stepped off the bench at the break and, much to the relief of the packed away end, duly pulled the Hammers level in the 69th minute having latched on to Robert Green`s long kick. And Frederic Piquionne ensured West Ham kept up the pressure on leaders Southampton when he somehow converted Julien Faubert`s cross just six minutes later to cap an improved second-half display. Jack Collison lodged his contender for miss of the season in injury time but it mattered little as West Ham took all three points. Sam Allardyce named an unchanged Hammers XI from the side who won 2-0 at Hull prior to the international break. Fit-again Coventry duo Martin Cranie and Chris Hussey returned to Coventry`s starting line-up along with rookie midfielder Gael Bigirimana, upon completion of his three-match suspension, and the recalled Platt. The hosts showed no signs of intimidation inside the opening exchanges, with both sides contributing towards a free-flowing encounter played at pace. In fact, it was Coventry who dominated possession in the first quarter and they went on to deservedly break the deadlock in the 33rd minute, full-back Cyrus Christie sending in a low cross from the right which Platt did well to control, turn on and fire home from 12 yards. City went close to doubling their lead through Platt`s header before Gary McSheffrey was denied by some last-ditch Hammers defending as he launched himself at the ball, with the hosts given a standing ovation by their supporters at the interval. Allardyce turned to Cole at half-time and the substitute entered proceedings with the tempo of the encounter continuing where it had left off. McSheffrey and Lukas Jutkiewicz tried their luck from distance for the Sky Blues, the latter being denied by a super parried save from Green. The outcome was anything but certain as the game continued to flow from end to end, with the Hammers starting to take a hold. And it was they who drew level in the 69th minute through Cole, who latched on to Green`s long kick upfield, shrugged off the attention of Richard Keogh and fired past Joe Murphy. The turnaround was soon complete as Faubert sent over a cross from the right and Piquionne, somehow, connected with the ball at the back post and beat Murphy. Coventry rallied in search of an equaliser, Platt heading wide before Conor Thomas and Sammy Clingan both saw efforts blocked by Kevin Nolan. Collison was then presented with the simplest of chances to wrap matters up in added time but he could only fire over from six yards, although it proved inconsequential.
