West Ham United's squad were pleased with their 0-0 draw with Southampton last night.
The Hammers went into the game on the south coast as heavy underdogs, but they beat the odds to claim a valuable point.
Their route to doing so was not a simple one, either. West Ham were reduced to ten men after Adrian was sent off for handling outside the area, but they held on and showed their defensive organisation.
It will be something which pleased manager Sam Allardyce, who went into the game stating he was envious of Southampton's defensive qualities.
The battling nature of their performance also delighted some members of the first-team squad, who were quick to express their satisfaction with the result on Twitter after the match.
Cole stated that the point felt like a win and Jarvis echoed his sentiments that it was a point gained rather than two dropped.
That point yesterday felt like a win considering the circumstances. Weren't the best of games but the lads showed steal & grit. #Coyi— Carlton Cole (@CarltonCole1) February 12, 2015
Great grit n determination from the lads to get a point tonight! Pleased to get some more minutes also! #COYI— Matt Jarvis (@MrMattJarvis) February 11, 2015
Cresswell, meanwhile, was quick to urge his side to build on this result. West Ham face West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup on Saturday and the left-back wants his side to put in a similarly effective display against Tony Pulis' men.
Big point tonight with 10 men.. Go again Saturday now.. Good fa cup run— Aaron cresswell (@Aaron_Cresswell) February 11, 2015
