Noble missing for Hammers
Midfielder Mark Noble will miss the visit of West Brom despite returning to light fitness work this week after having his appendix removed.
Noble was voted as the West Ham fans' Player of the Month for October, but will miss at least the next two home games with Blackpool also due to visit the Boleyn Ground at the weekend.
Fellow midfielders Jack Collison (knee) and Thomas Hitzlsperger (thigh) remain on the long-term injury list while Tal Ben Haim (foot) and Zavon Hines (knee) are also out.
Matthew Upson has told his team-mates that, before they can climb out of trouble, they need to accept their performances so far have warranted their lowly position.
"I think some of our performances have been a mixed bag in the same game, with good and bad that has just cost us in little areas," he told the club's website, whufc.com.
"We've made bad choices and we've been punished heavily this season. We need to get back on a winning streak and a couple of wins will change everything.
"The brutality of the Premier League is that, if you make the wrong choice, you'll pay for it.
"We can't say we're not a 'bottom of the table club' because the facts speak for themselves and we are.
"The table doesn't lie and the points we have don't lie. That's the things we need to change and until we change that, we have to accept that we're in this position and we have to get out of it.
"I think we need to learn from games like Saturday and understand that once we went 2-0 up and our attitude, our decisions with the ball and the way we played the game needed to be different.
"If we'd done that, we'd have won the game."
West Brom will be without suspended midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu.
Mulumbu will have to serve a one-match ban after his sending-off for acquiring two yellow cards against Manchester City on Sunday.
Defender Gonzalo Jara is also suspended as he serves the second of a three-game ban for his straight red card at Blackpool.
Full-back Nicky Shorey is battling to overcome an ankle knock sustained against City.
But Albion boss Roberto Di Matteo is hoping Steven Reid (Achilles) and James Morrison (knee) will be fit.
Scott Carson expects West Brom to return to the kind of performances which have been the trademark for most of the season.
The Baggies have been in the top six of the Barclays Premier League in recent weeks but back to back defeats against Blackpool and Manchester City have seen them drop down to 10th.
Skipper Carson believes Albion showed City too much respect during the opening 45 minutes of their 2-0 home defeat.
He said: "We have been getting into players' faces during games, stopping them playing, and making it difficult for them.
"Against City, we seemed to stand back a bit too much in the first half and maybe showed them too much respect.
"It was something we haven't been doing. We sat off them and invited pressure. We lacked a bit of energy in pressing and closing them down.
"We kept going and should have played how we did in the second half in the first half.
"We have had a good start to the season but Sunday showed we have to be at 100% at all times at this level. Now we have to bounce back."
Hammers stay bottom after draw
West Ham were once again left frustrated and remain bottom of the Barclays Premier League as they were held to a 2-2 draw by West Brom at Upton Park.
Peter Odemwingie had put the Baggies in front from the penalty spot in the 38th minute.
However, Scott Parker smashed in a 25-yard effort to level before the break and Frederic Piquionne put the Hammers ahead from the spot at the start of the second half - only for Pablo Ibanez to deny Avram Grant's men a much-needed first league win since September 25.
Kieron Dyer, in for the injured Valon Behrami, looked lively during the opening exchanges as the home side took the initiative.
However, the Baggies also passed the ball around crisply and Odemwingie sent in a low, angled effort from the edge of the penalty area which Hammers goalkeeper Robert Green gathered.
West Brom broke quickly after defending a corner and had men over as Jerome Thomas charged down the middle. However, the midfielder elected to shoot, but could only fire a tame 20-yard effort straight at Green.
West Ham continued to have plenty of possession but failed to find a telling pass with which to open up the visitors' defence.
Carlton Cole headed a corner just over the crossbar but there were still too many stray passes from the home side - with Hammers fans growing increasingly frustrated.
Green was alert to punch away Chris Brunt's curling free-kick from the right, with the follow-up shot deflected behind. From the resulting corner West Brom were awarded a penalty when referee Mike Dean spotted Luis Boa Morte had bundled over Steven Reid in a crowded penalty area.
Boa Morte was shown the yellow card, before Odemwingie sent Green the wrong way to give the Baggies the lead after 38 minutes.
Upton Park was left in stunned silence, but replays showed the referee was spot-on.
The home side looked to get themselves on level terms before the break, but again lacked a decisive pass in the final third.
However, out of the blue, midfielder Scott Parker smashed a 25-yard effort into the top-left corner as the Boleyn Ground erupted.
Danny Gabbidon's close-range header was held by Scott Carson, who then saved from Boa Morte at his near post as the Hammers continued to press.
Boa Morte was somewhat fortunate to escape a second booking when he went in late on Graham Dorrans, but received only a stern talking to.
The referee then pointed to the spot again in the 50th minute, this time in West Ham's favour as Dyer dashed into the right side of the penalty area and was barged over by Gabriel Tamas.
With regular penalty taker Mark Noble out injured, Piquionne stepped up to fire the Hammers into the lead
The home fans were in uproar as Parker was left in a heap in front of the advertising boards following a sliding challenge by Thomas which went unpunished.
It was almost 3-1 when Mexico winger Pablo Barrera dashed down the left before feeding Dyer on the penalty arc, and his clever first-time flick released Piquionne on the overlap.
However, the Frenchman's angled drive flew inches wide of the far post.
West Brom substitute Simon Cox then almost had an immediate impact when he drilled a 25-yard effort just wide.
Green then plucked Odemwingie's snapshot out of the air as the visitors looked for an equaliser.
It was 2-2 after 70 minutes when Brunt delivered a lovely deep cross from the left which was met by Ibanez at the far post, who powered a header back into the opposite corner.
The hosts sent on Victor Obinna and Benni McCarthy as they pressed for a winner, yet despite a couple of half-chances, West Brom held out for a point.
West Ham, though, need a win against Blackpool on Saturday if they are to climb clear of trouble.
