Ashton Set To Face Newcastle?

Last updated : 26 April 2008 By Footy Mad - Editor

Hammers striker Dean Ashton has been in full training this week after missing last week's win over Derby, meaning boss Alan Curbishley has a similar squad to choose from.

Central defender Anton Ferdinand was ruled out last week with a hamstring complaint.

Magpies boss Kevin Keegan is set to field the same side again, with only minor knocks to worry him.

Emre (calf), Stephen Carr (hamstring), Claudio Cacapa (groin), Peter Ramage (knee) and James Milner (foot) are nearing returns, while Shay Given is recovering from groin surgery.
