Tennai Watson could miss out on AFC Wimbledon’s Carabao Cup clash with West Ham on Tuesday night.

The Reading loanee has not played since the goalless draw at Barnsley as he struggles for full fitness and could miss out again at Kingsmeadow.

Midfielder Tom Soares is another who is not expected to ready to feature, with boss Neal Ardley hoping to field a strong a line-up as possible.

Kwesi Appiah is working hard to shake off a knock and will most likely face a late fitness test.

Marko Arnautovic is a doubt for West Ham due to a muscular injury.

Arnautovic captained West Ham in Saturday’s 3-1 Premier League loss at Arsenal, but was forced and will be assessed ahead of the game.

Mark Noble is a doubt with a back problem, with Michail Antonio also fighting an ankle concern.

Boss Manuel Pellegrini should mix up his starting line-up but is expected to field a host of senior names in a bid to kick-start the Hammers’ campaign after three straight Premier League defeats.
