Football - Colllins injury blow for Hammers

James Collins will have a calf complaint assessed on Friday and looks unlikely to feature in West Ham's clash with West Brom.

The injury resulted in the Welsh centre-back being forced off in the first half of the Hammers' 3-1 Boxing Day defeat to Arsenal - a match Ravel Morrison missed through a groin issue.

Andy Carroll, Ricardo Vaz Te, Stewart Downing and Winston Reid remain sidelined, while Adrian will hope to remain in goal despite an unconvincing display against the Gunners.
