West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is keen to field Andy Carroll today against Swansea City.

Allardyce is confident the 24-year-old will get another outing against the Swans - even if it will not be for the entire match.

He said: "He hasn't played a competitive game apart from the 15 minutes or so against Fulham after eight weeks out, so he's not ready for a full 90 minutes but he is ready to take part."
