FA Cup Preview: West Brom vs West Ham

Both managers are desperate on extending their participation in one of the most prestigious cup competitions when they meet at the Hawthorns on Saturday.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis has got the option with his improved Nigerian forward Brown Ideye’s scoring touch but on the other side West Ham boss Sam Allardyce’s injury problems have been a major concern as the England forward Andy Carroll suffered from his knee injury during the 0-0 draw against Southampton on Wednesday night.
