West Ham United winger Julien Faubert is happy with his progress from an early season knee injury.
Speaking to the matchday programme for the Everton cup tie, Faubert said: "It's great to be back with my team-mates. It was important to recover in the right environment and it was a shame to pick up the injury so soon into my West Ham career. I am now focusing on getting back to full fitness."
The 24-year-old's progress has naturally delighted manager Alan Curbishley, who said: "It's great to see him out there running. Hopefully if he continues the way he has done in the last week he will be a couple of weeks away from joining in with us which is a big boost."
