West Ham manager Sam Allardyce will stress England manager Roy Hodgson must be careful with Andy Carroll ahead of next week's World Cup qualifiers.

The striker, on loan at Upton Park from Liverpool, has only just returned to action after a month out with a hamstring problem, but was called up to the national squad for the ties against San Marino at Wembley on Friday night and then away to Poland on Tuesday week. Carroll played the full 90 minutes of Saturday's 3-1 home defeat by Arsenal.

Allardyce said: "Andy is really lacking in match practice. What I will speak to Roy about is his fatigue level. Andy will be stiffer than everybody else after this because he hasn't played a full 90 minutes in recent weeks, so he will take a bit more time to recover. But he should be fine for Friday and hopefully he will get a game at some stage to improve his match fitness."
