West Ham preview

West Ham are the visitors to the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday for what promises to be an exciting cup-tie with a decent atmosphere generated by the near 5,000-strong travelling fans and hopefully the home crowd too.

Vital Quotes:

Tim Flowers on reports Iain Dowie is set to quit: 'No! No chance - no chance.

'That's the truth - he'll be here on Tuesday.'

Coventry City Team News:

No new injury worries for City. Iain Dowie must have been pleased with his side's shape at the back on Saturday meaning any changes may come further forward.

Player to watch: Dele Adebola

Once again made an impact as a substitute on Saturday and will surely be given the nod to start on Tuesday night.

West Ham United Team News:

Craig Bellamy was subbed at half-time against Portsmouth on Saturday due to an abdominal strain and will not be able to face his former club.

Player to watch: Mark Noble

The home-grown midfielder is a big favourite at Upton Park and should be set for a feisty battle with Michael Doyle.

Match Facts & Stats

The last League Cup meeting between the two sides was in the semi-finals in 1981, West Ham winning a dramatic tie 4-3 on aggregate.

Ref Watch:

Premiership opposition and a Premiership referee. Rob Styles takes charge.

Next Fixtures:

Stoke City away for the Sky Blues, Bolton at home on Sunday for the Hammers.

It's important financially given the current state of the club. A good crowd and the Sky money could help pay the wages for another month!
