Carroll racing to be fit for Boro trip

West Ham v Crystal Palace

West Ham striker suffering from whiplash after wonder goal, with Reid, Feghouli and Byram also doubtful

Slaven Bilic has revealed that Andy Carroll is one of four players racing to be fit for West Ham United's trip to Middlesbrough on Saturday. 

Carroll, who scored a goal-of-the-season contender against Crystal Palace last time out, is carrying a knock along with Winston Reid, Sofiane Feghouli and Sam Byram.

But the Hammers are hopeful all four will be available for selection at the Riverside Stadium. 

“Andy has got a bit of a whiplash injury,” Bilic confirmed on Thursday. “That’s what I have been told by the physios, so I went to a dictionary to find out what that is!

"He trained on Tuesday and was brilliant in training, but then he reported some neck pain, but hopefully he’s going to be OK."
