West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce admits losing Momo Diame only adds to his injury headaches.

With the likes of Alou Diarra, Ricardo Vaz Te, Jack Collison, Yossi Benayoun and Andy Carroll already out injured Diame's absence is a big loss to Allardyce.

"For us he is about the start and build-up of most of the creative side of our game - he runs at them (defenders) with pace and ability that puts them on the back foot," he said.

"That is what we have lost and what we will be missing for a number of weeks so we are going to have to be a bit more dogged and resilient with the players we have got available, rather than have the more creative side we have had from Mo."
