West Ham's Spector enjoying midfield role

American defender Jonathan Spector was happy to play in midfield for West Ham in their 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers.

"I am playing a bit out of position but to be honest I did enjoy playing in the centre of the midfield," Spector, who came on in the 50th minute in a holding role for Hayden Mullins, told whufc.com. "Overall the team worked really hard," he added. "Bolton are a really tough team to play against considering their style of play.

"We didn't give them too many opportunities. The last ten minutes they put a lot of pressure on us and were just hoofing the ball forward but it obviously worked well for them. They got the draw they were looking for so we are all really disappointed. We were really looking forward to a win."

As for the praise from Lee Bowyer, Spector added: "They are nice words coming from someone like Lee who has been there and done it. All I am doing is working hard and trying to fill a role in the team and fortunately it worked for the most part. I am delighted to be playing anywhere on the pitch."
