Carroll craves more goals

Published Add your comment

Andy Carroll hopes he can follow up his long awaited first West Ham goal by finding the net against Manchester United and Chelsea.

Carroll headed home Joey O'Brien's cross in Sunday's 3-1 defeat at Tottenham to end his 1,062-minute Barclays Premier League goal drought. The £35million man had been brought in on loan to provide the firepower for the Hammers, but manager Sam Allardyce has instead had to rely on Kevin Nolan for his goals this season.

Carroll was relieved to finally get off the mark for his new club, saying: "It was about time (I scored), to be honest. I'm just grateful to have got off the mark and hopefully there will be more to come this week."
