West Ham United manager David Moyes admits weather conditions are a concern ahead of their trip to Swansea this weekend.

The Hammers are expected to make the trip to the Liberty Stadium tomorrow afternoon (3pm) but with the snow falling heavy all week it has put speculation into whether the match will go ahead.

Moyes’ men currently sit 13th in the Premier League table and only three points ahead of their opponents who are in the relegation zone and third from bottom as they both look to grab vital points in their bid to remain in the top flight.

“The met office is saying people shouldn’t travel and that people shouldn’t go on the roads and travel, especially I think through Cardiff and around there M4, so I’ve got to say that is a concern at the moment to see what they say,” the 54-year-old Scotsman said.

“I’m guessing it shouldn’t be any different for football clubs or for football supporters, you know if they’re saying don’t travel then I think the Premier League will have to consider that as well.”

The former Everton and Manchester United boss also revealed the wintery weather has made preparation and training for the match a lot harder.

“I’d be lying if I said it didn’t, obviously we’ve not got a under spoil heated pitch here, but overall we’ve managed it,” Moyes said.

“We’ve been able to train, we’ve been outside everyday, but it has been really cold.

“As you have seen as well everyone has been training in the snow for the last few days and we’re no different.

Befoe admitting there has also been a few snow balls chucked around at their Rush Green training ground site: “There has been a bit of that as well but the players are fine.”

Moyes also revealed there is no new injury concerns ahead of the trip other than a few little knocks that are no major concern at this point in time.

“I think we’re ok,” he said.

“We’ve got a few people with knocks and bruises like all clubs, maybe a bit of sniffles here and there, but overall I think we’re fine.”
