Swansea manager Michael Laudrup is wary of the powerful striking options available to opposite number Sam Allardyce as the Hammers look to turn around a miserable sequence of one win in their previous 11 fixtures.

The Welsh side travel to West Ham tomorrow looking to maintain an excellent run that has seen them lose just once in their last 11 games in all competitions.

He said: “West Ham have a good team and if you let them play they have players who can play like (Mark) Noble, (Joe) Cole, (Matt) Jarvis and (Kevin) Nolan.

“Up front they have power with Carlton Cole, Andy Carroll and Marouane Chamakh, although he is a slightly different player.

“It’s a team that haven’t had a good run lately, it is an important game for them, they need to bounce back and we have to continue our good moment.”
