Expect the changes to be rung tonight as West Ham start their run in to the end of the season. Speculation is rife that both Freddie Sears and James Tomkins will start the game against a Portsmouth side which be will missing several of its leading stars including Jermain Defoe. Freddie Ljunberg willmiss out, with his place probably being filled by Nobby Solano. George McCartney is also a major doubt, along with Matthew Upson.
Last season’s game against Portsmouth was a terrible disappointment, with Linvoy Primus ruling the game and nabbing two goals to boot. Surely tonight cannot be worse than that. It has the added incentive of putting the Hammers seven points above Spurs if we win. Now that really is something worth playing for.
