Hall injury latest

Robert Hall has undergone tests to ascertain the extent of the injury that kept his out of last week's FA Youth Cup tie at Chelsea.

West Ham's youngsters went out of the competition following a penalty shootout at Staines FC's Wheatsheaf Park last Wednesday night minus the England youth international, who sustained ligament damage ahead of the game - as confirmed by David Gold last Thursday.

18-year-old Hall spent the weekend taking tests to see whether the injury would, as has been speculated, keep him out for the rest of the current campaign - and possibly beyond.

And Sam Allardyce is expected to confirm the extent of the injury during his (Blackpool) pre-match press conference later today.

Hall, who spent the first half of the current season on loan with Oxford made his first team debut for West Ham in the 2-1 home win against Derby on 31st December, since when he has made a further three appearances for Sam Allardyce's side (all substitute appearances).

He also made his debut for England's under 19s against Denmark last November - a game in which he scored - having previously appeared for the national squad at all levels from under 16s upwards.
