West Ham's Etherington happy with McCartney combination

Matthew Etherington is enjoying his left-side combination with George McCartney at West Ham after Sunday's 1-1 draw with Bolton.

"I enjoy playing with him, he overlaps me and it gives me options," Etherington told whufc.com. "There is a good understanding there."

Etherington was a surprised as anyone to see McCartney open the scoring against Bolton with a "rare-old right-footed volley".

He added: "It was a great goal from him. He deserves it, he's been playing well this season. It was a game we should have gone on to win. We had more than enough to chances to kill the game off and we never did."
