Former West Ham United striker John Hartson has praised their away form this season.

Hartson starred in a Claret and Blue shirt between 1997 and 1999.

Speaking after the 0-0 draw with Swansea City, he told West Ham TV: "West Ham historically haven't been a great side on the road, even in the days I was there.

"Harry [Redknapp] would always say even in the great days gone by when he played with Bobby Moore, Martin Peters and all those great, great legends at West Ham they were always a bit of a soft touch on the road.

"The fact that Sam has got them more solid now will mean they can pick up more points on the road. He's obviously addressed that, looked at them over the years and by defending really solidly and not conceding goals you're obviously going to pick up more points on the road."
