Since returning from injury it is fair say Hammers striker Andy Carroll has certainly found his stride in claret and blue.

The Club's joint top scorer again picked up the SBOBET Player of the Month for April at the weekend - just four weeks after collecting the same prize for March.

And with six goals from his last eleven games, the big Geordie is hoping to add to that tally in the final two fixtures of the campaign.

He told West Ham TV: "I've been working hard, the fans have been seeing me playing well and it's good to get the award for the second month running. I'm happy.

"It's great for the fans to have a vote and I am over moon with collecting it two months in a row. But obviously, it's a team game and everybody puts their all in every week."

Following West Ham's goalless draw at the Boleyn Ground against Newcastle United on Saturday, the striker admits it felt strange playing against his boyhood team.

He continued: "It was a tough game, Newcastle are a great side but they're struggling at the minute down at the bottom. It was a tough game and I thought we could have nicked it and they maybe could have nicked it as well. It was a good result after all."

Looking ahead to the trip to Merseyside Carroll is eager to see the team end the season with a winning streak.

He added: "It would be nice to get a result at Everton on Sunday. We hoped to get a result last Saturday but only managed a point but that's good enough. I hope we get six points from our last two games.

"I missed a lot of the season through injury so I've kept myself fit and put in the work to stay like this. Now it's paying off and I'm happy. I could still go for another few. I'm not ready for the rest yet."
