Given West Ham's defeat at home to Tottenham today, a tricky decision lies ahead for Mark Hughes tomorrow in terms of team selection. A victory over Fulham - rivals of ours in the race for seventh position - would see us move back within 3 points of that all important UEFA Cup spot.

However, we are beset by injuries at present with several players ruled out already and if there are any doubts tomorrow, Hughes must way up the value of their involvement against the importance of the UEFA Cup second leg at home to Hamburg on Thursday.

Judging by Hughes's comments prior to the game, it does seem as though he is still aiming for seventh spot though and I'd back our home form of this season to carry us to another three points.
