Carew could cushion Baldock blow
Sam Baldock is ruled out but John Carew could return when West Ham host Burnley.
Baldock faces three weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring problem but fellow striker Carew should be available after resting a knee injury at Middlesbrough in midweek.
Carew will probably be on the bench with one or both of Frederic Piquionne and Carlton Cole, the goalscorers in the 2-0 win on Tuesday night, starting up front.
Guy Demel could keep his place at right-back after an encouraging debut at the Riverside and midfielder Jack Collison is pushing for a return to the starting line-up.
Defender Winston Reid (shoulder), winger Gary O'Neil (ankle) and on-loan midfielders Henri Lansbury and David Bentley (both knee) are still out.
Marvin Bartley faces a late fitness test for Burnley.
The midfielder hobbled off shortly after half-time in the Clarets' emphatic 4-0 win over Ipswich on Tuesday night, suffering from a tight calf.
Ross Wallace is available once more having served a one-match suspension for that game, but superb wing displays from Junior Stanislas and Keith Treacy mean the Scotland international might have to be content with a place on the bench.
Charlie Austin (dislocated shoulder) and Martin Paterson (thigh) are back in training, but next weekend's game with Portsmouth has been set as the realistic target for the forward duo.
And boss Eddie Howe appears more than happy to continue with current strike pairing Jay Rodriguez and Sam Vokes at Upton Park after both were on target against the Tractor Boys.
"Sam and J-Rod to have hit it off straight away, they've formed a good partnership," he said. "I thought Sam was excellent (against Ipswich) and I'm pleased he's got his first goal."
Vokes secures shock Clarets victory
Substitute Sam Vokes secured a shock 2-1 win for Burnley as West Ham blew the chance to go top of the npower Championship.
The Wales striker scored with virtually his first touch as Burnley came from behind to end the Hammers' seven-game unbeaten run.
All appeared to be going to plan for Sam Allardyce's promotion favourites when Kevin Nolan fired them ahead just after half-time, especially with leaders Southampton losing at lowly Doncaster.
But things are never simple at Upton Park and Chris McCann grabbed a leveller against the run of play before Vokes popped up with the winner.
The Hammers had dominated the first half but could not make the breakthrough.
The first real chance fell to Matt Taylor in the 27th minute, the midfielder heading Julien Faubert's cross over the top.
Moments later Nolan fluffed the best chance of the first half.
Jack Collison took advantage of a slip in the Burnley defence to play in Carlton Cole and the striker squared for Nolan, right in front of goal, eight yards out.
The midfielder got his left foot to the ball but his effort rolled just the wrong side of the post.
Burnley's first shot came 10 minutes before the interval, Keith Treacy's long-range effort not troubling Robert Green as it fizzed wide.
West Ham's pressure finally told seven minutes after the interval, and came from a long clearance from keeper Green.
Cole flicked the ball on and Nolan coolly lifted his finish over the advancing Lee Grant and into an empty net.
But far from the goal signalling the opening of the floodgates, Upton Park was stunned five minutes later when Burnley grabbed an equaliser.
Former Hammers winger Junior Stanislas, sold by Allardyce in the summer, swung in a cross from the right and McCann was on hand to bury his header past Green.
Shell-shocked West Ham went straight back on the attack and Frederic Piquionne headed Faubert's cross straight at Grant before a shot from Collison was blocked in front of goal.
But Burnley remained dangerous on the break and Ross Wallace had Green scrambling across his goal with an effort which rolled just wide.
The warning was not heeded by the West Ham defence and in the 74th minute Burnley took a surprise lead, Wallace swinging in a corner and Vokes, who had only been on the pitch a couple of minutes, climbing highest to nod past Green.
Cole shaved a post as West Ham attempted to haul themselves level but the Clarets held on for a third straight win.
