Ashton Must Fight for his Place
Alan Curbishley has told Dean Ashton he must earn his place in the West Ham starting line up,
"Ashton is fit and he's waiting for his chance. As you saw with Owen and David Beckham with England, football is what gets people to the top of their game. He had a great pre-season in terms of having no hiccups and he can only get better.
He's delighted he's back. The qualifiers are a couple of weeks away, and he needs a bit more than that. He needs to try to get back in the West Ham side."
