17-year-old Reece Burke is set to make his second start for the Hammers this weekend when struggling Burnley provide the opposition.

Burke, who made his first professional start in last weekend's goalless draw at Loftus Road will partner James Collins for a second successive weekend when the Clarets visit the Boleyn Ground on Saturday.

With James Tomkins out for the rest of the season with a shoulder problem and Winston Reid still unavailable due to a hamstring, Burke will be once again start for Sam Allardyce in West Ham's penultimate home game of the 2014/15 season.

Manager Allardyce, speaking to the press this morning revealed the news. "Our injury list stays the same. Unfortunately there's nobody back from last week which means the same squad and another start for Reece Burke," he confirmed.
