Collins: Injuries no excuse for West Ham

West Ham United defender James Collins says they can't use injuries as an excuse after their stalemate with West Bromwich Albion.

Collins is refusing to blame an injury crisis for his side's run of five games in which they have banked just four points and are left nursing the joint worst away scoring record in the Premier League.

He said: "We have got a few injuries, but we can't use that as an excuse.

"You just have to deal with it. If you haven't got the players, there is nothing you can do about it. We came to West Brom and got a great point, and as long as we keep showing the team spirit and fight we showed in this game we'll be fine."
