Match Preview

Hammers low on numbers West Ham are without a host of key players for the visit of Barnsley. Jack Collison and Joey O'Brien are suspended after they were sent off during last week's 3-0 defeat at Reading while Guy Demel is out after being stretchered off with a thigh injury. Midfielder Matt Taylor remains a doubt with a calf problem and defender Winston Reid (shoulder), widemen David Bentley (knee) and Gary O'Neil (ankle) and striker Sam Baldock (hamstring) are still on the sidelines. But Arsenal loanee Henri Lansbury is fit again after eight weeks out with a knee injury and could come in for Collison in midfield. Winger Julien Faubert is likely to drop to right-back in the absence of O'Brien and Demel. Barnsley defender Jay McEveley has only an outside chance of returning to play any part. McEveley has missed the last two matches due to a thigh strain and is in a race against the clock. Manager Keith Hill has no new injury or suspension problems and is not expected to make many unforced changes. Defenders Rob Edwards and Miles Addison are pushing for recalls as Hill looks to stabilise a defence which conceded five goals in last week's 5-3 home defeat to Ipswich. Hill will find it difficult to break up the partnership of Ricardo Vaz Te and Craig Davies up front as they have shared nine goals in the last four matches and that could mean a place on the substitutes' bench for on-loan Newcastle striker Nile Ranger and Danny Haynes. Barnsley have won five of their last seven league matches and sit five points adrift of the top six.

Match Report

Rare Diop strike nails Hammers victory A rare goal from Papa Bouba Diop sent West Ham joint top of the npower Championship with a 1-0 victory over Barnsley. The veteran Senegal midfielder found the net for the first time in English football since he scored for Fulham against Blackburn - exactly six years ago to the day. The Hammers wasted numerous chances to add to Diop's early header, but Barnsley could not take advantage and a sell-out Upton Park was able to celebrate victory after two successive defeats had dented their promotion bid. The win moved Sam Allardyce's side level on points with leaders Southampton, who play at south-coast rivals Portsmouth on Sunday. West Ham went into the clash riddled with injuries and suspensions, so boss Allardyce could have been forgiven for thinking the world was against him when Abdoulaye Faye pulled out of the warm-up. That meant left-back George McCartney filled in at centre-half with 17-year-old Daniel Potts, son of former Hammers skipper Steve, fast-tracked into his debut. However, the home side shrugged off that early blow and took the lead after just six minutes, Mark Noble swinging in a corner and Diop launching his considerable frame above the Tykes defence to crash his header past Luke Steele. Potts only signed a professional contract the day before the game, and his first appearance came just two years after he was given the all-clear after a battle with leukaemia. The youngster was showing no signs of letting the occasion get to him and twice almost set up another goal with fine left-footed crosses which Carlton Cole and James Tomkins failed to make the most of. The Hammers shouted for a penalty after 18 minutes when Fredi Piquionne's run into the box was halted by Jay McEveley, but referee Scott Mathieson was not impressed. Cole should have doubled the lead on the half-hour when, having run on to Noble's through-ball, he appeared to have done the hard work in holding off two defenders and side-stepping Steele only to screw his shot wide. And just before the break a last-ditch challenge from Rob Edwards prevented Piquionne from finding the net. Allardyce has bemoaned his side's lapses of concentration for letting in crucial goals this season and they dozed off again at the start of the second half, moments after a stray cat had interrupted proceedings, but Rob Green made a fine save from Edwards' header. With seven minutes left Allardyce felt Freddie Sears should have had a penalty as the youngster tumbled in the area, and in his frustration aimed a kick at some plastic bottles before being sent to the stands by referee Mathieson. But Allardyce took his seat among the fans and watched his side see out a nervy ending to get back to winning ways.
