West Ham striker Toni Martinez hopes for new chance against Shrewsbury

West Ham striker Toni Martinez is aiming for more first team action ahead of their FA Cup replay with Shrewsbury Town.

The prolific Spaniard made his senior debut as a substitute in the original tie at Montgomery Waters Meadow and will hope to be part of David Moyes' squad for the second meeting in east London.

“To play with the first team in an official game was a great joy for both me and my family," said the 20-year-old, speaking in a feature interview to be published in the Official Programme.

“It's what I have fought for all my life.

"I made my dream come true and now I hope it's the first of many. I will work for it."
