West Ham can narrow the gap between themselves and the automatic promotion slots to just three points with a win over Guy Poyet's Brighton & Hove Albion at the Boleyn this afternoon.
With Southampton losing 3-1 at home to Reading last night, Sam Allardyce's side can move within three points of the Saints should they manage to do something they've failed to at home for the last seven outings - namely win a game.
Live updates from Upton Park will be provided throughout the afternoon on our forum match thread, which may be found here: www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=139712.
And for those supporters unable to attend this afternoon's match, a number of streams should be available from which you may watch the action live via the web.
As usual, any available video - or audio - feeds will be listed in our streaming thread at www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=133293 (a number of which have been posted already).
KUMB.com will, as always, bring you match summaries at both half time and the final whistle, with the thoughts of both managers to follow this evening/tomorrow morning and those of the opposition fans sometime tomorrow.
