Morley hails Hammers return

Former West Ham United striker Trevor Morley will be keeping a keen eye on Saturday's game at Manchester City, as the Eastlands club are one of his former employers too.

Morley moved to the Boleyn Ground in December 1989 after notching 21 goals in 82 goals for the Citizens.

He continued to be prolific in claret and blue, scoring 70 goals for the club in a five-and-a-half year spell and, now working as a television pundit in Norway, has been impressed with the Hammers' form on their return to the Barclays Premier League this season.

He told whufc.com: "It's a big one on Saturday. City have lost the title so they'll be desperate to get a win, and of course West Ham are looking to finish in the top ten.

"They'll want to kick on. The away form has been not as good as the home form, but it's all to play for.

"It would be a brilliant achievement for West Ham to finish in the top ten for their first season back in the Premier League.

"When you think back to the Play-Off final and the fine margins there - it was a 50-50 game on the day - to come up and be top ten, with how strong the Premier League is, is an excellent return.

"They've picked up wins when they've needed to. They're on a good little run at the moment, and the home form has been superb, so it's been a more than satisfying season."
