Deano back at the Boleyn

Former West Ham United striker Dean Ashton was back at the Boleyn Ground, as he joined up with BBC's Football Focus team prior to the 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers.

Ashton, who made 56 appearances for the Hammers between 2006 and 2008, gave an exclusive interview to West Ham TV, upon only his second return to the club since his retirement due to an ankle injury in 2009.

It proved a poignant afternoon for the hugely popular figure, whose goals so nearly fired the Hammers to FA Cup triumph in 2006.

"It's nice to come back, it's always a special place for me," he told West Ham TV. "The crowd have been fantastic to me, when I was playing and also since I finished. That's great for me and it makes me feel good, obviously."

After hearing his name ring around the Boleyn Ground during a half-time interview, Ashton was reminded of exactly what he's missing.

"That's what you miss from when you're playing - playing in front of all the fans and getting their reactions when you score and when you play well."
