England U19 winger Junior Stanislaus is delighted with his progress this season at West Ham United.
He told whufc.com: "I am enjoying it, playing for the reserves has made me more confident and of course, you are learning alongside some of the senior players as well, it's good.
Stanislas has also had another taste of the England Under-19 set-up already familiar to Jordan Spence, James Tomkins and Freddie Sears - all of whom should also be on view this evening. He was involved in the 2-0 friendly win against Croatia earlier this month having also got a taste of playing against Germany last November.
"It was a good experience, I loved it - everyone wants to play for their country and you do think you must be doing something right for to be picked.
"But it only makes you want to go on and do more. In the last match, I came off the bench and had a few minutes and my aim is to have even more minutes on the pitch for both West Ham and England. With international football, it's all about keeping the ball and moving it fast as well. I had moral support from Tomka and Fred up there, and I really enjoyed it, so hopefully there is more to come if I keep working hard at my game."
