A solitary goal from Jack Collison was enough to see of the home side and edge the Hammers ever closer to Premier League safety.
Speaking to the media after the game, Hammers boss Sam Allardyce was full of praise for his side after they ended a sequence of 5 away defeats. “This was a win we deserved and a victory we’re very pleased with. It’s come when we have been under a lot of pressure recently and this has eased that pressure.
“We put in a huge performance last Monday [against Tottenham Hotspur] and got a hugely disappointing result, but this time we got another huge performance and a fantastic win.”
