Neufville - The aim is the play-offs

U21s left-back Vashon Neufville hopes Monday's win over Stoke will lead to a play-off campaign
Young Hammer Vashon Neufville says the play-offs are now within touching distance of the Development Squad after a 1-0 win over Stoke City on Monday night.
The victory moved the Hammers up to fourth in the table, and another three points in the final league game at Aston Villa would ensure a play-off campaign is to come for the U21s.
And Neufville was pleased with the way he and his teammates kept plugging away to eventually grab the winner against the Potters late on.
He said: “I’m feeling ecstatic. It was a long, tough game, but finally we got the goal. It was a nice clean sheet too – there wasn’t much pressure at the back.
“I personally thought that I played good, except for a few sloppy touches, but it was good.
“The aim is the play-offs. One more win at Aston Villa, and hopefully we can get there.”
Terry Westley’s side’s winner – a 94th minute penalty – was scored by 16-year-old substitute Idris Kanu in just his second U21s appearance, and Neufville thinks his teammate has a bright future.
“Personally, I think he’s a good player. He had great confidence to come on and take the penalty.
“I think he can get into the first team if he just keeps on working hard."
