Grant delighted with Stech in West Ham Cup win

West Ham United goalkeeper Marek Stech won praise from manager Avram Grant after their Carling Cup win over Sunderland.

The 20-year-old was in solid form, making one outstanding late save from Steed Malbranque to maintain the visitors' slender advantage.

Grant told whufc.com: "He is a good player. Ruud [Boffin] is also a very good goalkeeper, as is Peter [Kurucz] who is now injured. We have very good young goalkeepers and it's part of our vision about the club. Firstly because of the financial situation, but also because we want to give opportunities to young, hungry players who want to develop the club."
