West Ham United vice-captain Scott Parker has stepped-up his bid for fitness ahead of this weekend's clash against Wigan.

The trip to the DW Stadium is pivotal for the Hammers, with anything other than victory almost certain to send Avram Grant's side down.

Parker, who claimed the Football Writers' Player of the Year award last month, has missed the last four matches for his side with an achilles injury, with only one point picked up in the midfielder's absence.

Now, the Daily Mail claims the midfielder will complete an intense recovery regime in a bid to face the Latics on Sunday.


His efforts will be aided by staff at the club, who will meet the player daily at the training ground to take part in a 'specifically devised fitness programme'.

Injuries have plagued the Barclays Premier League's basement club this season, but an appearance from Parker could serve as an inspiration going into the vital close of the campaign.
