Fred's not dead

Freddie Ljungberg is expected to be available for selection for this weekend's match against Derby.

Initial fears were that the Swedish international - who was injured in the dying stages of the 1-1 draw at Everton a fortnight ago - would miss the rest of the season with a hamstring.

But as confirmed on KUMB last week, the injury was not as bad as first thought - meaning that the 30-year-old should be fit to feature in the last four four games of the season.

"The injury was a little weird, especially since it was quite painful, said Ljungberg. "It was quite hard for the medical team to diagnose but I've been told it was an inflamed nerve. Thankfully I am getting back to full fitness very quickly.

It is likely I will be fully ready this coming week and available for this weekend game. I am lucky it wasn't a hamstring injury, and I have been told that the extra work I put in this winter is the reason I am in good shape."

Ljungberg has made 26 appearances for the Hammers since his summer switch from Arsenal, scoring two goal in the process.
