The striker, only just returning from a long in jury, felt he should have done better with a free header from 6 yards out.
“I’m just very disappointed with the result, especially after coming on and having a great chance to score,” he told West Ham TV.
“I felt like I should have done better and I should have scored. There was no excuse for that.
“I’m just really disappointed I couldn’t make it for the lads, really. I felt like I let everybody down and I’m just going to try to do better next time. I’m glad to be back and I want to regain my place again.”
“It was a great chance - the easiest chance I will ever have to score and I should have put it in the back of the net.
“I’m obviously very disappointed so I’m going to strive to do better next time. I’m going to keep work and keep improving and as my fitness picks up, I will surely do better.
“I was just very disappointed to let the team down.”
