Supporters call for Noble inclusion

West Ham supporters have called for teenage star Mark Noble to be drafted into the first team in place of Nigel Reo-Coker this weekend.

A snap poll on KUMB has revealed some 65% of readers want local hero Noble to replace the injured Hammers captain - who is set to miss up to six weeks after breaking an ankle bone - at Tottenham on Sunday.

Noble himself is keen to play in the game; talking on the club's website at whufc.co.uk today he said:

"It would mean so much to me to be part of a winning West Ham team at White Hart Lane - and it would be even more incredible if I could get some time on the pitch.

"Obviously I'm really hoping to be involved in the game. It may be on the bench, but I'm just itching to play a part - and hopefully I can."

The most likely replacement for Reo-Coker - former club captain Christian Dailly - polled 16% of the vote, behind both Noble and Shaun Newton. You can read the full interview with Mark here.

* Noble starred for England under-19s (along with fellow Hammer Moses Ashikodi) in last night's 2-0 friendly win over Switzerland.
