Mullins fights for Irons place

23 October 2008 04:16
West Ham United midfielder Hayden Mullins has vowed to stay at Upton Park and fight for a regular first-team spot. The 29-year-old former Crystal Palace schemer has not started a Premier League game for the Irons this season, but is determined to stay put and fight for his future. He told The Echo: "For me it's just a case of waiting for a chance to get back in. "When the manager came in we was on the back of some good results and we were fourth in the league. I wasn't first choice then. "Since he's come in we've had two good results, the Newcastle and Fulham games, but it was a blip against Bolton, so there was no need for him to change it really. "I'm just knocking on the door and if I get my chance I've got to put in a performance. "I haven't spoken to him personally as yet, because he's got to get his feet under the table first and get to know everyone. "I don't really want to go and knock on his door and ask why I'm not playing. It's just a case of waiting for my chance. "Hopefully it'll come soon. If I get my chance I have to take it and if I don't, we'll have to see where that leaves us."
