Burnley's Junior Stanislas vows to get his revenge on West Ham

Lancashire Telegraph: HAMMER TIME Clarets winger Junior Stanislas is to return to his old stomping ground West Ham HAMMER TIME Clarets winger Junior Stanislas is to return to his old stomping ground West Ham

JUNIOR Stanislas is ready to strike a blow against the Hammers, and make them regret letting him go.

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has already expressed his concern that Stanislas and Zavon Hines could come back to haunt him tomorrow.

The former Blackburn Rovers and Bolton manager allowed the duo to join Burnley in August.

And Stanislas hopes to fulfil Allardyce’s fears and sink his old club with his first Clarets goal.

“That would be good for us,” he said.

“If I can go there and score that would be great, but the result is the most important thing, and if we get that it will be a good day.

“We’ve had good results in the last two games so hopefully we can continue that.”

Asked if he felt he had a point to prove, he added: “A little bit. But their manager’s got a job to do. He has to try to get them promoted and if I’m not going to be part of that then I wanted to be somewhere I could play week in, week out. As long as I’m playing I’m happy.

“Sam said I was in his plans but the season started and a few games went by and I wasn’t really featuring.

“I played in the Carling Cup and made one other appearance but it wasn’t enough for me.

“He’s a straightforward guy and a nice guy, but from my point of view I had to move on.”

The 22-year-old was on West Ham’s books for around 10 years before leaving in August to join ex-Hammer Hines at Turf Moor. And, although he admits to having a tricky bedding in period, Stanislas insists he has no regrets.

“It hasn’t really been hard but obviously it is a big move coming from London. At the time we’d just had twins as well.

“I wouldn’t say it was a difficult time but it was a big change,” he said.

“It was very difficult to leave because I’d been there for so long. It’s the club I grew up at. It just got to a point where I wanted to play more frequently – week in, week out.

“I wasn’t getting that there and the gaffer here wanted me so that was it.

“Gianfranco Zola gave me my debut, and I thought I would play quite a lot of games after that.

“When he moved on managers went with experience and it was a lot harder for the younger players to make an impact.

“I’m here now and playing, which is what I wanted.

“The manager’s given me the opportunity to do that, which I’m thankful for.”

Stanislas faces pressure for his place in the line-up from Ross Wallace, who is available after missing Tuesday’s 4-0 win over Ipswich through suspension.

The Londoner boosted his cause with a couple of assists, but said: “I think there’s a lot more I can do.

“To be honest it’s taken me a little while to settle in and get used to things but hopefully from now on you’ll see more improvement.

“I was pleased with the game the other night. We’ve had some good results after losing four on the bounce.

“Up until then I don’t think I’ve played anywhere near the level I’m capable of. Maybe that’s due to match fitness and sharpness. But hopefully now I can push on.

“I want goals. I’ll do my job with the assists, but I used to score a lot. I’d rather get the goals than set them up.

“But getting a run is the most important thing.”
