Zavon Hines scored his fifth goal in as many games against Grays Athletic last week and is just one of several players aiming to follow team-mates Jack Collison, James Tomkins and Freddie Sears into the first-team picture.

"There is competition, but that is good. They all want to be the next ones who break through," Keen told whufc.com. "They all muck in together, there's a good spirit. They were glad that Jack, Freddie and James have got their senior debuts and they too want to be the ones playing in the Premier League."
