West Ham United No2 Neil McDonald says they were pleased with the commitment of their players after drawing 0-0 with Newcastle United.

Former Newcastle favourites Kevin Nolan and Andy Carroll had chances to win the game for the Hammers and assistant manager Neil McDonald felt they proved there was no chance of split loyalties for the duo.

"They are 100 per cent behind West Ham," he said.

"Obviously they have a past with Newcastle and good times with them but they are so focused on West Ham trying to get in the top 10 now with two games left, after getting newly promoted and they've been solid all the way through.

"They've contributed as much as anyone in the team which is fantastic."
