“It was a very good first half performance,” Hendon told West Ham TV. “We got an early goal and it’s easy to sit back when you score early, but the lads didn’t do that. They continued to do what we wanted them to and got another goal just before half time.
“The game died a little bit in the second half, it got disrupted with the amount of substitutes that came on which generally happens in pre-season games.
“Overall, it’s a good performance, a good result and it leads us up nicely for the Cardiff game next week.
“Progressively, the teams we’ve played have got better. They’re a Champions League team we played on Saturday. They are tough opposition, they keep the ball and we get a lot of work off it.”
