Dan Potts featured for the West Ham United youth team against their Manchester City counterparts on Friday.

West Ham United defender Dan Potts has taken to social networking site Twitter to revel in his return to action on Friday night.

The 21-year-old featured for the Hammers’ Development Squad against their Manchester City counterparts and helped them to a 2-1 win.

Potts has been struggling with injuries this season, and he was delighted to have played some football on Friday.

On Saturday, the youngster, who scored against City, posted the following message on Twitter.

Potts is a highly-rated defender and is expected by many to make himself a regular in the West Ham first team in the coming years.

The full-back, an England Under-20 international, made his debut for the Hammers senior team back in December 2011.

Meanwhile, the West Ham first team continue to struggle for form in the Premier League, as they were held to a goalless draw by Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road in the London derby on Saturday.

The result means that Sam Allardyce’s side are now 10th in the league table with 44 points from 34 matches.
