WEST Ham are likely to be without star man Michail Antonio this weekend for their FA Cup fourth round clash with Kidderminster Harriers at Aggborough Stadium (12.30pm kick-off).

The lively striker is away on international duty with Jamaica and plays a World Cup qualifier against Costa Rica in the early hours of Thursday morning UK time, leaving it tight to arrive back in England and be fit to play on Saturday lunchtime.

Antonio has scored eight goals and registered six assists for West Ham in the Premier League this season. 

The Worcester News/Kidderminster Shuttle will be in the West Ham press conference later this week for further team news.

Harriers do have one more game before the eagerly anticipated clash with the Hammers and that takes place on Tuesday February 1 at home against Leamington Spa (7.45pm kick-off) in the National League North.

Kiddy were held to a 0-0 draw with strugglers Gloucester City at the weekend but are otherwise in good form in the league and are well placed for a tilt at automatic promotion this season.

But with that comes a certain amount of pressure and assistant boss Jimmy O'Connor alluded to that at the weekend following the Gloucester draw.

"There is an air of expectation because they are playing well enough to deserve that," said O'Connor.

"The challenge is now can we continue that into the remainder of the season. We are expected to win and its not always going to happen but we have to enjoy that expectation.

"When we get setbacks, every time we have been challenged, this side have come through it and that's what we will be aiming to do on Tuesday.

"Club's watch us and they do their homework, which makes things difficult for us but that's credit to us

"We want the season to be a success so we have to rise to the challenge."
