West Ham United U21 coach Nick Haycock was pleased to see Dylan Tombides on the scoresheet in victory over Colchester United.

Tombides started the game from the bench, but Haycock says it's all to do with his fitness plan as the Aussie recovers from overcoming a cancer battle.

"You saw the quality of his finish, I was joking with him at the end of the game about the shot he put over the bar but you can see the boys got quality.

"It's more about slowly but surely with Dylan. I know what he's capable of and I see a good career in front of him, we speak every day and he knows what I think of him and I'll do the right thing by him," Haycock told whufc.com.
