West Ham United winger Matt Jarvis needs to stay patient in his quest for a regular starting spot, according to assistant manager Neil McDonald.

West Ham United winger Matt Jarvis must be patient as he looks for first-team opportunities, according to assistant manager Neil McDonald.

Jarvis has made just one start for the Hammers since moving from Wolverhampton Wanderers for £10m in August.

McDonald thinks that Jarvis will need to work hard to nail down a regular starting birth in Sam Allardyce's side.

The Hammers' number two told reporters: "Matt's biding his time. There's a lot of competition but he's definitely ready to go back in.

"Our gaffer has always had a reputation that if you play well you stay in the team.

"Whoever can't get in, and it might be a record signing, they have to wait for their chance to come.

"And when it does come they've got to be ready."

The 26-year-old is in the Hammers squad for the London derby against Queens Park Rangers on Monday night.
