Charlton Athletic boss Chris Powell is pleased for Ravel Morrison over his success at West Ham United.

Morrison scored a wonder goal in victory at Tottenham last week.

"Even though I was a Spurs fan growing up, I met Ravel on Sunday night at St George's Park and I said to him, what a great goal. They've got little diamonds like that alongside the experienced players, Kevin Nolan, you've got Joe Cole in there, James Tomkins and Winston Reid," Powell told whufc.com.

"They can have a good season, a real solid season. I don't think you want people asking for too much. Of course, you want to do better than you did last year, but the big thing is to stay in this league. The Premier League is what West Ham deserve.

"Like Sam, I'm pragmatic in respect of, first and foremost, stay in this league and see where it takes you. They've got Burnley in the cup as well, so could have a little eye on Wembley!"
