West Ham Utd 1 Doncaster Rovers 1 (10/03/12)

Saturday 10th March 2012, K.O. 3PM, Boleyn Ground, London E13

Reverse Fixture: Sat 13th August 2011, Doncaster Rovers 0-1 West Ham United, http://www.kumb.com/report.php?id=101153" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

West Ham's first Saturday 3PM kick-off since 21st January sees Doncaster Rovers travel to London to take on Sam Allardyce's side at the Boleyn Ground. Currently on a run of 3 draws in a row, The Hammers will be hoping to change that and gain 3 points in their quest for promotion against the side that sit just one place off the bottom of the division.

West Ham are unbeaten in 7 games at home, since the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Burnley back in December last year.With 4 wins, and the rest draws, the odds would favour a home win, but with the nervy atmosphere at the Boleyn Ground, Doncaster will be hoping to improve on their 3 away wins for the season.

With no injuries reported after the 1-1 draw with Watford on Wednesday, Sam Allardyce has a full squad to pick from, with the exception of perma-crock Guy Demel.

Rovers come in to the game off the back of a 2-1 win away to Nottingham Forest. That was only their second win since the start of January. In their 9 league games in 2012, they have won 2, lost 3 and drawn 4.

Man to watch: El-Hadji Diouf : Almost nailed on that he will score against the club that rejected him in the summer.

Although I am expecting another frustrating afternoon - 2-1 West Ham. A Noble penalty and a Nolan tap in.

A few changes from last night ..

Green
JOB
Tomkins
Faye
McCartney
Noble
Nolen
Vaz Te
Collison
Cole
Baldock

Maynard, Taylor, Morrison, Reid, Lansbury

Baldock has to start for me. He engery when coming on both last night and against Palace seem to lift the team and the crowd.

3-1 West Ham: Baldock, Cole, Vaz Te

Stick with 4-3-3, seems to work better for us. Whenever we've gone 4-4-2 this season we've looked largely poor.

Collison and/or Lansbury back in. Faubert out. I suspect it'll be Vaz Te/Cole/Collison front 3, Nolan/Noble/Lansbury midfield.

I was about to say: "what does Baldock have to do to get into the team?"
Then I realised the answer is score, which he hasn't done.

Big question is who starts up top, it's a tough one.
