West Ham have recalled goalkeeper Stephen Bywater from his loan spell at Coventry City.
Bywater was on loan to Coventry until the end of the year
Bywater, 24, who began last season as West Ham's first-choice keeper, was loaned out when Roy Carroll and Shaka Hislop joined in the summer.
"We're obviously very disappointed Stephen has been recalled but we have to get on with it," City manager Micky Adams told the club website.
"It leaves us short of cover but gives a great chance to Clayton Ince."
Carroll was one of West Ham's best players in their 2-1 defeat at Manchester City last Sunday, but withdrew from the Northern Ireland squad for their last two World Cup qualifiers because of injury.
