West Ham striker McCarthy ready for Cup chance

West Ham United striker Benni McCarthy is set for a playing return tonight against Carling Cup opponents Sunderland.

McCarthy was fined £80,000 for exceeding his target weight of 85 kilograms (13st 4lb).

McCarthy, who is itching to fire West Ham into the fourth round for the first time in three seasons, said: "I feel extremely sharp and good. If a chance comes my way, I would like to grab it."
