Spector delighted with central chance at West Ham

West Ham's USA international defender Jonathan Spector is looking forward to an extended run at centre-half after his outstanding performance in Saturday's win at Middlesbrough.

The former Manchester United trainee told "I haven't played there all season. It's not easy playing in new positions but centre-back is probably my favourite. I've been given a chance to play there because of injuries. We have a lot of good players around in the squad and I think that helps raise everyone's game. I hope to get more first-team action but that's at the manager's discretion. I am hoping to cement my place in the team."

Spector is determined to make a name for himself as an established force at the Boleyn Ground, acknowledging that being moved around the team to suit the occasion "can be good and bad". He added: "Hopefully it will benefit me in the long run."
