David Moyes has admitted that its been a tough period for the club in recent weeks, although was relieved to see his side claim all 3 points at the weekend.
West Ham had to come from behind to beat Nottingham Forest on Sunday, to bring a huge sigh of relief for Moyes’, who’d seen his team record 3 straight losses in the Premier League leading into the game.
Nerves were certainly felt going into the game, with an anxious atmosphere surrounding the importance of the fixture, but credit to West Ham who stuck at it, despite falling behind, to come back and claim a vital win and hopefully turn the tide this season.
Moyes has acknowledged that things have been tough in recent weeks, and the boss was understandably delighted with how his team showed desire and fight to claim the vital victory.
“It’s been a really tough period for us since the last set of internationals,” admitted the Hammers manager when speaking to the press, as reported by the clubs Official Website.
“So to win today and to also win in midweek in Europe against Olympiacos, we’ve finished this period off really well.
“Coming out for the second half, we wanted them to get much quicker with the ball, be faster, try and get more balls in behind and make more runs behind them. I thought we did that. Unfortunately we got done with a little bit of a sucker punch, went 2-1 down, but great credit to the lads because they picked themselves up and got the result.”
The manager admits the international break gives a welcome respite for the squad, with the hope we come back fresh and ready to continue on the back of the bacl-to-back wins in all competitions
“We’ve had two big months, so we’ll give the players a bit of time off now,” added Moyes “They deserve it. They’ve done well.
“We’ve had some games where it hasn’t gone our way but that’s certainly not because of their attitude or the way they apply themselves. They’re great boys. The attitude is superb and they’re really committed.”
