Nicky Maynard is delighted with his preseason form at West Ham United.

The striker has been playing in a midfield role and is relishing the switch.

"I've been playing wider than I usually do," he confirmed to West Ham TV. "The gaffer has said it's more than likely we will be playing this formation so it's good for me to get used to the role.

"That doesn't mean I won't get chance to play through the middle, but it's another position for me to learn."
