West Ham defender Collins full of praise for Cole
He said: "Losing Andy Carroll would be a blow to anyone, but since Carlton has come in he has been superb.
"Against West Brom he spent a lot of time up front on his own, but he held the ball up well and brought the other boys into play. Any team is going to miss a player like Andy, but all credit to Carlton. He always works hard, he certainly worked his socks off in this game."
