West Ham United head coach David Moyes has, on Saturday, confirmed a fresh personnel blow amongst his ranks.
Moyes and co. are of course currently in the thick of preparations for a return to action on Monday night.
After a timely return to winning ways in the league at the expense of Everton last weekend, this time round, the Irons will turn their attentions towards matters in the FA Cup.
A trip to Pride Park lies in wait, where West Ham will go head to head with League One outfit Derby County for a spot in the competition's fifth round.
The efforts of Monday's visitors to secure precisely that are already set to come sans the services of one high-profile name, with David Moyes having confirmed on Saturday that wide-man Maxwel Cornet remains some way off a return to competitive action.

And now, as alluded to above, a 2nd injury blow has been confirmed in east London.
The latest Hammers star in line for a spell on the sidelines? Kurt Zouma.
Speaking to the media on Saturday, Moyes revealed that defender Zouma has picked up a quad complaint, the extent of which is set to be determined courtesy of medical scans over the days ahead.
Zouma will also miss out in the cup. 'Kurt has got a [quad] injury. He overstretched [flicking] his foot to the right, which we think has tweaked it. His thigh has swollen up badly at the top, so we think there is a small tear, but we're not sure until the blood goes away' #WHUFC
