West Ham United assistant boss Steve Clarke admits a fit-again Kieron Dyer will make life easier for manager Gianfranco Zola.

"I'm not going to give any secrets away but when you've got a player like Kieron Dyer you can make many positions for him and many different systems," he told whufc.com.

"He'll have a massage and then play for the reserves on Monday night. He was working on Sunday and then Monday he plays for the reserves and then if he's very good we might give him Tuesday off," Clarke added with a smile.
