West Ham boss Curbishley confident injury dramas now over

Despite Craig Bellamy's hamstring setback, West Ham boss Alan Curbishley is adamant his new-look medical team will improve their injury record.

Curbs has added chief medical officer Nikos Tzouroudis to lead a staff of specialists, physios and fitness experts.

The Hammers boss said: "Last year our ratio was one fitness specialist to 10 players.

"Players are high maintenance. They demand people around them so that they have everything to improve as a player and stay fit - so we have gone along with that."
