The hero against Leicester City last weekend, Djair Parfitt-Williams has now set his sights on sinking London rivals Tottenham Hotspur when the Under-18s go head-to-head with Spurs at Little Heath this Saturday.

The Bermuda-born winger scored one in each half to see off the Foxes in a 2-1 win and extend his side's winning streak to seven matches.

With nine goals to his name already this season, Parfitt-Williams has played his part as Steve Potts' team continue to lead the way in the Barclays Under-18 Premier League.

The wide man told West Ham TV he believes the team's fine form is down to their commitment on the training pitch.

"We're playing well as a team and scoring a lot of goals at the moment," he explained.

"Everybody on the team works really hard in training and we've got good players on our team. Our fine run is no surprise to me because I know how good this team is."

"There's no secret to it, it's just the work-rate from everybody in the team in every position. Everybody in the squad works hard. It's no secret, every day we work hard together."

The 17-year-old speed merchant netted the winner against Leicester with just eight minutes to spare, a result which could prove to be crucial as fellow front-runners Fulham suffered a 3-1 home defeat against Southampton.

The Hammers had been pegged back by the Foxes after Parfitt-Williams had opened the scoring, and the winger was delighted that the team were able to take all three points.

"I think we controlled the game well, but we had one defensive mistake which made it a tight game.

"We had to concentrate and keep doing what we were doing for the whole game up until the last ten minutes when we got the goal.

"It's a good feeling to be part of this team and to be coming away from most matches with a win. I love scoring goals and I was happy to do that against Leicester."

Saturday's game against local rivals Spurs is an opportunity for the U18s to put further breathing space between themselves and the north London side who currently occupy third in the table.

The Lilywhites have two games in hand on the Hammers and trail them by six points, meaning all is to play for when the two sides do battle on the weekend.

A 3-2 win against Spurs earlier in the season was secured with a late Jordan Brown goal, and Parfitt-Williams is expecting a similarly close game this time round.

"I remember from the last time that Tottenham are a good team. They pass the ball well but I think we matched them and it was a good game last time round.

"It was a close game and we managed to get a goal in the last minute. It was a good game, there was a lot of good football and we played well.

"We've got Tottenham, Everton and Manchester City coming up in the next few games and they'll all be tough matches."

Kick-off at Little Heath on Saturday is at 11am. Admission and parking are free of charge.
