The midfielder was introduced as a late substitute at the Boleyn Ground, but was unable to help the Hammers fashion a late equaliser.
He told whufc.com: "I feel good. After playing 45 minutes with the reserves the other day and getting some time on Saturday makes me know that if I'm needed, I've got some time under my belt. It's great to be out there. I really enjoyed my football last year, I was in the team most weeks and it's been a bit of a blow to miss the start of the season, but the boys have been fantastic so far and it's great to come back into a squad that's playing well."
