West Ham co-owner gives Winston Reid and Victor Moses injury updates

West Ham face Wolves in the FA Cup during their next clash.

David Sullivan says Winston Reid and Victor Moses are expected to return to the West Ham United first team ahead of their FA Cup clash with Wolves, according to the club's official website.

And the West Ham co-owner is very excited ahead of the cup tie, anticipating a wider range of supporters than the weekly regulars at Upton Park.

Against the Championship side, defender Reid and winger Moses should be in contention to play.

Sullivan wrote in his 'From the Boardroom' column: "We expect Winston Reid and Victor Moses to be ready for the Wolves FA Cup game on Saturday.

"We will put a strong team out for that game and it’s fantastic that we’ve sold out weeks in advance. We priced it to sell it out and a lot of people that wouldn’t normally come to games are coming."

Intriguingly, both players' absences weren't felt all that strongly against Liverpool. West Ham were unlucky with injuries over a long period - which resulted in Slaven Bilic making his side hard to beat and often settling for draws.

Now, though, with Moses and Reid coming back, the likes of Michail Antonio and James Collins are starring.

Obviously, Manuel Lanzini's new injury will provide a big blow but main man Dimitri Payet is now back in the first-team fold.

Can West Ham realistically enjoy a strong cup run this season? There are only five teams ranked higher than the Hammers in the whole country after 20 Premier League games.

Wolves are on form but West Ham are certainly capable of beating them. After that, a favourable draw and some good performances could leave the east London side saying goodbye to Upton Park with a very good cup campaign indeed.
