West Ham United defender Jordan Spence is happy with his progress this season.

Spence returned from a four-month loan spell at Championship side Scunthorpe United in December. His form since then has seen him involved in Gianfranco Zola's first-team squad in recent weeks.

He told whufc.com: "In the weeks since I've come back from Scunthorpe, I can't think of a time when the performances haven't been of a good standard. We've had a young side that has stuck together and it would be a fitting reward for them to finish the season with a win and move into the summer knowing we've equipped ourselves well in the second half of the season."
