Hoyte happy with Hart’s faith in him.

English-born defender Justin Hoyte said he had no qualms over the decision by Stephen Hart to insert him into a right midfield position for the first World Cup qualifier against St Vincent and the Grenadines last month.

Hoyte started both games for the “Soca Warriors” and later admitted the contest at Arnos Vale was a grueling one for him.

“The manager asked me if I could do the job in that position which was not nearly new to me because I’ve played there before and it was not a problem. I said I could do it. Obviously the game was a tough one with the conditions which saw us fell behind just before the half. But we got right back into it and went onto to secure the win which was most important,” Hoyte said.

“And then we came back to our home stadium and showed a lot of class in the way we dominated the game and finished them off. For me the main thing is the way this team is getting stronger every time we get together both on and off the football pitch. And even with new players coming in, everyone wants what is best for the team and there is a feeling of one love and unity among everyone. We’ll be taking this into the two games in September and then straight into the final round next year and onward to Russia,” Hoyte added.

The former Arsenal player is under contract with Dagenham & Redbridge until May.
