The Hammers have released another injury update via their Treatment Room segment on their official website, with Head of Medical and Sports Science Stijn Vandenbroucke providing some positive news with regards to the fitness of Andy Carroll.

The West Ham fitness expert also provided an update on the warm-weather training camp in Dubai, sharing the disappointing news that the next four days is set to be a wash-out, with heavy rain forecast.

Carroll, 28, has had to endure terrible luck with injuries throughout the course of his career.

He seemed to have put his fitness problems behind him recently, however, and was in fine form for Slaven Bilic's men, before the wretched injury curse struck again, just as the Hammers' game against West Brom was fast approaching.

But Vandenbroucke, who has spent six years with West Ham over the course of to separate spells, provided a positive update on the former Newcastle United and Liverpool man's progress, when writing his column for WHUFC.com:

"I will start by updating on Andy Carroll, who picked up an injury earlier this year. We got Andy fit enough to face Middlesbrough and then also to face Southampton, but the West Bromwich Albion game came too quick and Andy is now working towards the Watford game."

He also went on to discuss the club's trip to Dubai, and provided an update on the weather conditions in the Middle East:

"We traveled to Dubai overnight on Wednesday and unfortunately the forecast is for rain over the four days we are there, but it still represents a change of scenery for the squad and a possibility for us to work intensively with the players who need some extra fitness work."

Hopefully for West Ham, the adverse weather conditions will not have a detrimental effect on their ability to train to the levels that they desire.
