By: Staff Writer

West Ham have used used no less than 32 players so far in the opening three games of pre-season.

Sam Allarydyce - who led the team for the two pre-season friendlies in Switzerland - and Wally Downes - manager for the day at Bishops Stortford - have used almost three teams'-worth of players as they attempt to mould a side to challenge for the Championship.

The player currently leading the 'Pitch Minutes' table is young striker Cristian Montero, who has appeared all three pre-season games thus far.

Close behind is 'keeper Marek Stech with two full appearances to his name whilst young full-backs Jordan Spence and Jordan Brown complete the top three (three appearances each).

Of the established first team squad members, only Frederic Piquionne, Freddie Sears and James Tomkins make it into the top ten at present. Just three first team squad players are yet to be used, those being Robert Green, Pablo Barrera and Peter Kurucz.
