AFC Wimbledon striker Paul McCallum is convinced he'll get his chance at parent club West Ham United.

McCallum has hailed the impact at West Ham made by Sam Allardyce.

He told whufc.com: "As a striker, I have got to keep scoring goals and hopefully I can get my chance in the first team and score a few goals for them.

"When Big Sam came in, everyone was saying that we'd play route-one, but it's not like that. The manager does like to play with a big centre forward and I have got to believe I can be that man - that if I get my chance, I am good enough to take it.

"Whatever happens - if I return to West Ham or stay out on loan - I want to keep playing well and scoring goals.

"If I get the chance to stay with Wimbledon, then I just want to be playing and making a name for myself in the Football League. If I come back, obviously I'll do my best for the Development Squad.

"The Under-21 Elite Group Stage is a big thing for the young players at the club. We won out first-stage group and now we want to win the Elite Group Stage."
