Jonathan Spector hopes his strike for West Ham in yesterday's 5-0 thrashing of Derby stands.

"We worked really hard," Spector said. "We had to and it was a pretty emphatic result in the end. We knew the first goal was going to be important in the second half and when we got that it opened the floodgates."

Of his goal, the USA international told "It was a set-piece. The ball was half cleared and it came to me. I just tried to place it in the corner. Eddie Lewis was there and kind of fumbling with it and it went over the line. Hopefully it won't be taken away from me as it will be my first goal ever. If the [disputed goals] panel don't give it to me, I'll have Eddie call them and tell them it wasn't an own goal!"
