West Ham boss Grant facing Holy Day dilemma

West Ham United boss Avram Grant faces a crunch decision which could affect his job future.

The Daily Star says Grant faces having to choose between sitting in the dug-out for the club's vital clash with Stoke a week on Saturday or observing the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur.

The Hammers boss is a devout follower of the religion and would be required to observe a strict 25-hour fast from working, eating and even drinking water.

But this year that would mean him missing the game at the Britannia Stadium - a match which the Hammers may need to win to keep Grant in the Upton Park hot seat.
