Cole hails 2-goal Demba Ba in West Ham comeback
Cole was also on the scoresheet in the exciting fight back.
He told whufc.com: "I have to give my respect to Demba. He took the game by the scruff of the neck - got two goals and hit the post and the crossbar. He was incredible today and I this will help to spur us on in the next games.
"Also Freddie Piquionne when he came on, helped set up my goal and showed a great attitude - obviously he wasn't in the starting lineup today but he came on and helped us get the draw. I can't speak more highly of him."
