“We’re through – it’s all that matters!”

West Ham United v Nottingham Forest - npower ChampionshipWinston Reid made it clear the Hammers had learned the lessons from yesterday’s shocks saying: “The manager spoke before about the upsets yesterday, and we did not want to be one of them.”

“In the first half we were under pressure. It is always difficult coming to these places, Bristol City put in a good performance but we put in a clean sheet and Diafro Sakho got the goal, so it was good.

We wanted to come here and finish off the game and we did, even though we had to wait for that. 2

And the manager added: We always knew it was going to be a really tough game but bearing in mind the results of yesterday this was a big result.

“We haven’t played anything like as well as we can and at half time I told them at half time to use and pass the ball more accurately.

“We didn’t do that as much as I would have liked but the quality of Andy getting that ball in and Zak’s goal has put us in the fifth round and that’s all that matters.”

  1. It’s getting embarrassing for KN,today he should have been comfortable against lower league opposition ,but no he tried his best but he never has been able to get around the pitch fast,I know Song had a bad day ,but poor Noble looks bad along side KN because he has no help,if BFS really cares about his captain he will put him on the bench and use him in the last 20 mins when he can make a impact,we must start with a other option like young legs Poyet or speed and width with Jarvis or Valencia ,yes I am glad we won but I am not blind and this the 6th game running.
