Cresswell, Jarvis and Cole react on Twitter to Hammers' draw with Southampton

West Ham Tube Sign

West Ham United's squad were pleased with their 0-0 draw with Southampton last night.

West Ham United trio Aaron Cresswell, Matt Jarvis and Carlton Cole have all hailed the squad's character after they battled to a draw with Southampton. 

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.

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.
