Morrison ready to prove himself

27 August 2013 16:57

West Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison is hoping to get his first start for the club when they host Cheltenham Town on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old moved to Upton Park from Manchester United in January 2012, but made just one appearance before being sent to Birmingham City on loan for the 2012-13 campaign.

Morrison impressed during his time with the Midlands side, scoring three goals in 27 league appearances, and has already shown signs he is also ready to do so at West Ham.

The England Under-18 international found the back of the net six times in pre-season, and showed promise in a 15-minute cameo against Newcastle on Saturday.

And ahead of his side's first League Cup fixture of the season, he is relishing the opportunity of featuring again.

"It was good to be on the pitch and I really enjoyed it," Morrison told the club's official website.

"I thought we played well and defended solidly and I'm glad we got a point away from home as well.

"I feel good that the manager had the confidence to send me on for the final 15 minutes of the game when it was still in the balance.

"I feel I can contribute to the team going forward and defensively. I hope I can do so again when I'm given another chance."
