West Ham boss Grant delighted with Demba Ba scoring impact

West Ham United boss Avram Grant believes two-goal Demba Ba could help fire them to Premier League safety.

West Ham United boss Avram Grant believes two-goal Demba Ba could help fire them to Premier League safety.

The Senegal ace struck twice in their 3-3 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

"This is one of the reasons why we wanted to bring in players in the transfer window," Grant said.

"We didn't have a good bench, especially in terms of forwards.

"Now we can have players like Piquionne on the bench, or even Cole or Ba, and in these situations it is good to have them there - especially after we lost Keane, who has been very good in the two games he has played, and Obinna, who has been fantastic."
