Fit-again West Ham prospect Edgar eyeing first team breakthrough

West Ham United winger Anthony Edgar is eyeing a first team breakthrough after his successful return from long-term injury with the reserves.

The winger enjoyed a scintillating pre-season, scoring for the first team in a friendly victory at Peterborough United, before suffering an untimely knee injury at Queens Park Rangers in August.

Having worked his way back to fitness, Edgar was handed a 45-minute run out at Motspur Park.

Edgar told whufc.com: "It was a good game. I think the boys helped me out a lot. I was happy to get back into the reserve team - I played 45 minutes and I thought I did really well.

"To be fair, it was a good game. It was a strong-paced kind of game."

"Obviously it was a bit hard at times with my fitness but that will come in time, so all in all it was good.

"I knew a while ago that I would be getting a game, so I prepared myself in training and did extra stuff after training to be ready for the game.

"I wasn't nervous at all. I am quite a confident person. The knee felt good and my body felt good so I knew I would be OK."
