West Ham United 2 Cheltenham Town 1

Ravel Morrison marked his full West Ham debut with a superb goal as West Ham reached the third round of the Capital One Cup.

The 20-year-old, who joined the Hammers from Manchester United 18 months ago and spent last term on loan at Birmingham, was handed his chance to impress from the start against League Two minnows Cheltenham.

And he took his opportunity with both hands by finding the target with a fine individual strike just 40 seconds into the second half.

Morrison was once tipped as the finest talent to come out of the Old Trafford Academy since Paul Scholes, but he left United amid rumours of ill-discipline and a poor attitude.

However, a season in the Championship appears to have done him the world of good and, while while he has a long way to go to live up to the hype, Morrison offered a tantalising glimpse of his potential.

Collecting the ball on the edge of the area, Morrison turned inside, then out, leaving the entire Cheltenham defence wrong-footed before curling the ball low into the corner.

The Hammers were already leading thanks to Ricardo Vaz Te's free-kick just before the interval and, although Cheltenham pulled one back through a Matt Richards penalty, the Premier League side made it safely through.
