Craig Bellamy is believed to have suffered a set back in his rehabilitation process.
The Welsh striker, out of action for three months made his comeback as a substitute against Wigan last weekend and played the last twenty minutes with no apparent adverse reactions.
However strong rumours suggest that he could be set for another lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering stomach problems earlier this week.
Hammers boss Alan Curbishley refused to be drawn on the situation when commenting in yesterday's pre-match press conference, saying:
"He's a bit sore still to be honest.
"He's not 100 per cent how he wants to be but he still done enough in the reserve game - and when he came on against Wigan - that perhaps not being 100 per cent is not too bad."
Bellamy had managed just nine appearances since his £7.5m summer swqitch from Liverpool.
