Mladen Petric happy to make West Ham debut

Mladen Petric was happy to make his West Ham United debut in defeat to Everton.

Petric is set to be pressed into action.

The Croatian striker came on as a substitute and showed some promising signs in his first outing.

He said: "I hope I can help the team, not only scoring goals but in the games. This was my first match for three-and-a-half months, so of course I am not 100 per cent.

"All the other players had a pre-season, while I have to get up to speed in a short space of time.

"I have a bit more to do but I am sure I'll be match fit very soon."
