West Ham are confident intensive treatment will ensure a swift return to action for Kevin Nolan after it was confirmed the captain has suffered a broken toe.

The 30-year-old midfielder exacerbated a foot injury in Monday's 3-2 Barclays Premier League loss to Tottenham and will miss Saturday's match at Stoke.

But with over two weeks before the next match at Chelsea on March 17, Press Association Sport understands the Hammers skipper will be subject to rigorous treatment to ensure a speedy return.

West Ham were due to face Manchester United on March 9, but United are in the FA Cup quarter-finals that weekend.
