West Ham United striker Andy Carroll was delighted to prove the matchwinner for victory over Swansea City.

With Carroll now back to full fitness, the Hammers have their tails up and are confident of securing their top-flight status over the next few weeks.

"The points had dried up a bit so the lads are delighted with the win today," Carroll told West Ham TV after the match.

"You could see when I scored everyone was celebrating. And everyone was sliding in with last-ditch tackles at the end. We needed the three points.

"It was good for us to get the win. It will be good for all the lads to get a rest in a rest now and hopefully we can get three points at the end of it."
