Marney was taken off in the closing stages of Saturday's 2-0 victory over QPR after sustaining injury, while Arfield missed the clash altogether with a groin problem. Both players will be monitored ahead of kick-off.

Meanwhile, fellow midfielder David Jones picked up his fifth yellow card of the campaign on Saturday and will serve a one-match ban.

Former Hammers man Junior Stanislas is in contention to be brought into the side to face his old club.
