"I'm just happy that I'm doing well now and hopefully I can stay and do better things for the club."
Cole played for Alan Curbishley at Charlton in 2003/4 and he is delighted to have been reunited with him at Upton Park.
But he has only made six appearances this season, four as a substitute, and has yet to score.
"I'm happy that I'm working under Curbishley and I hope I can do well for him," said Cole. "Every striker goes through times when they can't score but hopefully I'll get that one goal and then the floodgates will open."
