David: I Can Do It

David Noble, who plays for Wimbledon reserves on Wednesday night, is positive that he can make a real contribution to West Ham's cause in the fullness of time.

David, a Scottish U21 international midfielder who signed from Arsenal a year ago, is looking forward to getting some match action against Watford - for whom he played on loan two seasons ago.

"I think it is more of a trial to go on loan - it is definitely what I need because I haven't played for West Ham for a while," he says.

"It is for match practice more than anything; I am not match fit and I need to get some games under my belt."

Ironically, competition in the midfield has increased since three Wimbledon players - Nigel Reo-Coker, Adam Nowland, and Jobi McAnuff, signed recently - but David insists:

"I am still feel I am good enough to make it at West Ham."

David has made one start this term, and has also appeared three times as a substitute.
