Ravel Morrison has been told he needs to continue to work hard if he is to play a part in West Ham's bid to secure promotion to the Premier League.
Manager Sam Allardyce has yet to hand the January signing from Manchester United his debut, saying it would take time before he is ready for the first team.
The 19-year-old attacker gave the Hammers boss a nudge with two well-taken goals as the club's development squad beat Brentford 2-0 on Tuesday.
And coach Ian Hendon told the club's official website: "Ravel did really well and it's not surprising. When you watch him in training you see the potential he has and he showed that on the pitch.
Part to play
"He scored two very good goals and Sam will be very pleased about that.
"If he keeps his head down and continues to progress well, maybe he will have a part to play with the first team before the end of the season.
"He's got that spark and potential quality that makes him a dangerous player. He's settled in well having moved from the north and the lads have taken to him too.
"Things are moving along nicely with Ravel."
