West Ham boss Curbishley happy with Cole form

West Ham United boss Alan Curbishley is delighted with the form being showed by striker Carlton Cole.

Cole struck in Tuesday's victory over Coventry and Curbishley told "Coley's worked ever so hard and deserved his goal.

"I hope it gives him more confidence because we play next at Upton Park and I hope he carries on. He has had to wait for his chance and he is now grabbing it."

He went on: "He finds it easier to play up there on his own.

"It is there for him, he understands what he has got to do. He just needs to make sure he doesn't go missing and switch off in games.

"He has got all the attributes but perhaps he has never been given a run and got that match fitness. So we may see something different from him now. He is there, he has got a chance. It is there for him to grab."
