Grant could be in West Ham dugout for Stoke clash

Avram Grant may still be in the West Ham United dugout for their clash with Stoke City.

The Daily Mail says Grant is trying to find a solution that will enable him to be at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday for West Ham's important Barclays Premier League clash against Stoke.

West Ham's Israeli manager has accepted that he cannot manage his team on what is Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of Atonement.

But Grant is also painfully aware of his team's current predicament - they have failed to gain a single point from their opening four games - and concern among many of the club's supporters that the players need their manager more than ever.

On Thursday night Grant was in discussion with religious leaders in a bid to come up with a plan which he hopes will ease the sense of anxiety among fans while also not offending people in Israel.
