West Ham United striker Paul McCallum can spy a first team opening for himself this season.

McCallum knows his physical approach and imposing 6'3 frame make him an archetypal Big Sam forward. With just Andy Carroll and Modibo Maiga ahead him in the pecking order, he is desperate to muscle his way into the first-team reckoning.

"We have only got two strikers at the Club at the moment in Maiga and Andy and I don't know if the manager will sign another one. I've got to watch Andy because he is the main striker here and I've got to do what he does, add it to my game and see if I can get my chance," he told West Ham TV.
