Blackpool's Baptiste slams West Ham: You just hoof it!

Blackpool defender Alex Baptiste slammed West Ham United's playing style after Saturday's promotion playoff defeat.

Ricardo Vaz Te netted the winning goal as the Hammers won 2-1 but the Seasiders' defender was hardly full of praise for the victors.

He told the BBC: "We were the better side. It was embarrassing at times. They just hoof it long and hope for the best.

"And it's a foul on me for the second goal, so the ref has done us no favours.

"I suppose everyone got what they wanted. Everyone wanted West Ham to win because they're a team from London.

"I wouldn't survive in their team because I'm not tall enough. All of them are eight feet tall."
