Allardyce wants caution on Carroll call

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has urged England manager Roy Hodgson to go easy with Andy Carroll in the next set of World Cup qualifiers.

The 23-year-old impressed during his debut against Fulham on September 1 following a loan switch from Liverpool - only to limp off with a hamstring problem which ruled him out of the internationals in Moldova and against Ukraine. Carroll has now resumed light training and could be back in contention for the visit of Arsenal on October 6.

That would almost certainly see the 6ft 3ins striker included for England's games the week after, against San Marino at Wembley and then in Poland, but Allardyce warned: "It would be something that would need a conversation between me and Roy to say 'Andy is back, but please be careful if he goes to England."
