West Ham defender Reid delighted with goal in stunning Spurs shock

West Ham United defender Winston Reid was delighted to get on the scoresheet in victory at Tottenham.

Reid's strike came after his header from a Stewart Downing corner was blocked by Kevin Nolan before he fired the rebound home - with the skipper claiming it would go down as a neat one-two for his assist.

"It was a nice one-two with Nobby!" smiled the New Zealand international captain with

"Fortunately enough the ball came back to me after the first header and I was able to get it in.

"It was important for us to get the three points on Sunday as it means we go into the international break on the back of a great win.

"People may not have expected us to keep a clean sheet and gain this kind of result here, but we believed we could and we've gone and proved it.

"The manager set us up with a gameplan, it worked and we've come away with a great result."
