West Ham striker Sears delighted with Scunthorpe start

West Ham United striker Freddie Sears is delighted with the way he has settled at Scunthorpe United.

He impressed in the 3-2 win over Preston and then repeated the star turn with a 2-0 away win against Watford on Saturday.

"The two games have gone really well," he told whufc.com. "It has been good to get the run-outs and help out the team. It was a bit weird the way it all started. I didn't train with the team, we just met for the coach to Preston and it was just a case of get on with it.

"I spoke to the boys on the bus and it all worked out right in the end. The football helps, all the boys know what they are about and want to do well. It was really easy to settle straight into the side."

Sears had the extra pressure of being handed the No10 shirt but admitted he thought he would have to wait for a chance off the bench. "I didn't expect to get that number but it was a sign the gaffer really wants me. It was a bit of a surprise but a nice one."
