Joe Cole: West Ham won with 'front-foot' football

Joe Cole was delighted to get on the scoresheet for West Ham United on Saturday.

Cole came off the bench on Saturday to add the final gloss to West Ham United's 3-0 win over Fulham.

"It's always nice to score and I was pleased for Carlton too because I've seen how hard he's worked," he told whufc.com.

"He had a difficult summer so scoring a goal was a real lift for him and you want your centre forwards to be scoring, because that's the focal point of the game.

"Maiga deserves a special mention too because I thought he was brilliant. He ran them ragged, won a number of flick-ons and gave a good centre-forward's performance. I hope he gets his goal soon because he's back and he's on it.

"The runs they were making gave Stewie Downing, Jarvis, myself and Kevin Nolan the space to play in behind them.

"It was real front-foot football from us. The manager really emphasised that we wanted to get on the front foot - we didn't turn up last week against a very good Chelsea side, so this was a good response."
