Dyer confident of West Ham return

Injury-plagued midfielder Kieron Dyer has targeted a return to the West Ham first-team before the end of the season.

The former Newcastle man has been sidelined ever since he suffered a double break of his leg in the Carling Cup tie with Bristol Rovers in August.

However Dyer is confident he will return to action within six months.

"I never doubted that I would be able to recover," Dyer told Sky Sports News.

"There have been a couple of players who have had a double break of the leg and they made a full recovery.

"It's quite a simple operation and the operation went well. I'm just playing it by ear now and taking it day by day.

"I'm starting to pick-up the rehab now and fingers crossed I will feature before the season is up."
