West Ham United assistant coach Billy McKinlay insists there's plenty more to come from Gianluca Scamacca.

The Italy international scored his first goal for the club in the 3-1 win over Viborg in the first leg of the Europa Conference League play-off.

"[Scamacca's] probably super pleased and I'm equally as pleased," McKinlay said.

"We all know strikers are judged on their goals so to get off the mark really quickly in a new career, new surroundings, is a big thing for a centre-forward

"They live on that so he'll be delighted. We saw some good moments from him tonight.

"He's still short of games, still short of fitness. There's plenty more to come but I'm really pleased he got off the mark."
