Sam Allardyce has indicated that he will look to strengthen his West am United playing group this winter.
The Hammers had six first-team players on the sidelines through injury for Sunday's 0-0 draw with West Bromwich Albion and the boss is aware he needs to fix things in January in order to remain move back up into the top half of the table.
"We want to push on, we don't want to slip down the league and to do that we'll either have to do a bit in the window or certainly get the players who are injured fit," he told Sky Sports.
"Two or three [injuries], that happens, but six is too many. We coped well today but I'm not sure how long we will cope if we have them out too long.
"We've six first-team players out injured so we're down to the bare bones. It was a real good, honest, solid performance from the players."
