Slaven Bilic confirms double fitness boost for West Ham United

West Ham United are set to welcome back James Collins and Sam Byram to training tomorrow.

Slaven Bilic has confirmed to West Ham United’s official site that James Collins and Sam Byram will be returning to training tomorrow.

Collins and Byram have both missed a sizeable chunk of action with injury, but they are preparing to make their comebacks now.

The defensive duo are set to train with their teammates tomorrow, as they look to regain match fitness.

“There is only James Collins and Sam Byram who haven’t trained with us for a few weeks now,” Bilic said. “Both are going to train with us tomorrow, but of course it is too early for them to be in the squad on Saturday, but they are coming back before the end of the season.”

Collins has not played for West Ham since the start of March, but his return will be a major boost for the London side.

The experienced centre-back has rolled back the years this season, to play an important role for West Ham.

Byram, meanwhile, is still trying to prove himself at Upton Park, after arriving from Leeds United in the January transfer window.

Byram has made a positive start to his West Ham career, but his latest injury set-back has stalled his progress, with Michail Antonio having to fill in at right-back in his absence.

West Ham's next match comes against Arsenal on Saturday at Upton Park.
