Carroll upbeat on recovery

2 October 2013 14:32

Andy Carroll has revealed he is making a steady recovery from his heel injury and hopes to be part of West Ham's squad as soon as possible.

The striker suffered the injury at the end of last season and has not featured for Sam Allardyce's side since their 4-2 win over Reading in May.

Allardyce has admitted that he is taking it week by week with the striker and has not been given a date when he should return to full fitness.

However, the 22-year-old has revealed that may not be too far away as he continues his rehabilitation in Belgium.

"I do actually feel it getting stronger but know I have to take it day-by-day," he told the club's official website. "I am just happy that it feels better.

"A lot of the work is repetitive but that is all to do with building strength and the stronger my leg becomes the better it is for my foot and heel.

"Since last Monday, I can definitely feel a difference so hopefully onwards and upwards.

"I am looking to be back as soon as I can to do my bit for the team."

Without Carroll West Ham have struggled to score goals in the Premier League – they have only netted four times in six games – and have not won since the opening day of the season.
