Allardyce confirms Matt Jarvis is back in starting contention

West Ham United are looking to hand Matt Jarvis an opportunity to impress in the coming weeks.

Sam Allardyce says that Matt Jarvis is in line to be handed more opportunities to impress at West Ham United. 

The winger has barely played this season, after missing the start of it through injury, and he has become frustrated with his lack of first-team chances. 

Jarvis has made it onto the pitch just four times to date, but Allardyce has suggested that he could be back in contention in the coming weeks.

"Matt Jarvis hasn't played as much as he wants to so he'll get a few more games soon," Allardyce confirmed at a press conference today.

Jarvis has been linked with a move away from the Boleyn Ground in recent times, but his manager's comments today seem to suggest that his future lies with the London club.

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers man has seen his chances limited due to West Ham's attacking prowess this season, but their struggles of late could see him called upon.

He will be determined to show Allardyce that he still has something to offer the club and he may have the possibility to do that tonight when the Hammers take on Everton in the FA Cup. 

West Ham are set to name a strong line-up against the Toffees, with Allardyce confirming that Mark Noble and Kevin Nolan will be in the team.
