West Ham boss: Collison, Tomkins could follow Sears

West Ham United boss Alan Curbishley says Jack Collison and James Tomkins could follow Freddie Sears into the first team this weekend.

"The three of them have been around us for a while, and they are just waiting to get the 90 minutes," said Curbishley.

"I was not afraid to put the young players in at Charlton, but the strength of the Premier League makes it very difficult for kids to get in now.

"We all want to finish as high up as we can, so when will these young kids get a chance?

"Some Premier League sides take the opportunity in the cups to give their players a go. However, this year we attacked the cups with our strongest side available because we thought they were competitions we could do well in.

"I have said for the last couple of weeks I have wanted to introduce one or two of them, give them a taste of it, so I will now pick and choose the games which I think are right.

"We have got eight games left and I will try to integrate a few of them and see how they shape up."
