West Ham midfielder Collison delighted with role in Cup win

West Ham United midfielder Jack Collison was delighted with his goalscoring performance in their Capital One Cup win over Burnley.

The Wales international scored a crucial late penalty to seal the Hammers' place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

"It was nice to get a bit of game time and to be in the hat for the next round." Collison told "If you've been through what I've been through injury-wise then you appreciate any time on the pitch. It's a bonus to get the result and a bonus to pop up with a goal.

"I enjoy trying to get on the ball, drive us forward and to try and make things happen. Thankfully I managed to do that on Tuesday. I won the penalty and probably should have done better with a couple of other chances."
