West Ham's Sakho and Song both in contention for Swansea City clash

Manager Sam Allardyce has revealed the key duo have trained this week as they look for their third consecutive victory.

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has been handed a big double injury boost ahead of this weekend's game against Swansea City.

Midfielder Alex Song and forward Diafra Sakho, who have both made a big impact on the side since arriving at the Boleyn Ground, have both trained with the side this week.

The Hammers' boss seemed to welcome the striking options at his disposal with Andy Carroll and Enner Valencia also recently returning to fitness.

Allardyce told reporters: "Sakho and Song have been training all this week so the opportunity for them to join the squad this weekend is good.

"Having Enner and Sakho back. Andy getting fitness, Zarate and Carlton Cole. Our striking options are great."

The Hammers will go in search of their third consecutive victory this weekend after overcoming Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion in the past week, as they take on a side who have also made a quick start to the season, with some perhaps expecting them to be not as high as their current league position.

Allardyce acknowledged that the key to their success this weekend could be stopping in form Swans striker Wilfried Bony.

"I think it's difficult to stop Bony. It's about the team as a whole stopping supply.

"Hopefully on the day we'll keep him quiet but he is in terrific form at the moment."

Given this weekend is a meeting of two of the season's surprise packages, Allardyce stated what it may take for his side to maintain their high performance level, and league position as a result.

"A consistent level of performance is what's going to make us a really good side.

"If the squad stays fit I think you can maintain it, but take each game as it comes, the old adage."
