After Dean's disaster injury last year almost cost the Hammers their Premiership place, ALL West Ham fans will simply be praying he comes back in one piece.

Steve McClaren has been impressed with Ashton's form since recovering from two ankle operations, scoring four time in three games for West Ham.

"I am absolutely delighted to be able to include Dean Ashton in the squad. It was sickening for me when he got that inury, but he has worked so hard this past year and he has got his rewards. He has improved game by game and we will watch him tomorrow when he will no doubt impress again and he most certainly deserves this call-up." Said McClaren.
