Conference League opponents Viborg have named their 18-man squad for tonight's tie against West Ham at the London Olympic Stadium.

The Danish side are major underdogs for the tie and their task has not been helped by the loss of several key players.

As revealed here on KUMB earlier in the week, Alassana Jatta and Ibrahim Said were unable to travel with the visiting party as neither were able to acquire visas in time for the game.

And in additional to the omission of the left winger and striker, Viborg are also without Marokhy Ndione, Mikkel Andersen and Lamin Jawara all of whom are currently injured.

Centre forward Ndione, a Swedish Under 18 international will be keenly missed given that his three UECL appearances so far this season have returned one goal and two assists, although he is yet to score in his first four Superligaen appearances.

Reserve goalkeeper Andersen, 33, is yet to feature this season and played on just 11 occasions last term while centre half Jawara, 20, is a relatively new signing having only joined Viborg in February from Gambian side Hawks Banjul FC.
