West Ham United striker Robbie Keane is excited about making his return to first-team action after recovering from a thigh injury.

The 30-year-old joined on-loan from Tottenham Hotspur in January but has spent the last five weeks in the treatment room, after scoring on his debut against Blackpool.

Keane made his comeback from the bench in the FA Cup defeat to Stoke City before scoring in a reserve team game last night.

The news will come as a boost for manager Avram Grant who is struggling to avoid relegation.

But Keane will have to wait another week at least because he is ineligible to play in this week’s match with Tottenham.

“The injury is fine now,” he told the club’s website.

“It has obviously been frustrating. You come to a new club and you want to play as soon as possible and you get injured.

“It is nice to get back and be able to get another 60 minutes. I am looking forward now to pushing on.

“It is always nice to score whether it is a reserve game or first-team game but the most important thing for me was getting as many minutes as I could under my belt.”
