West Ham United captain Matthew Upson has hailed the return to full fitness of Danny Gabbidon.

For victory over Tottenham, Gabbidon, normally a central defender, filled in at left-back and kept Aaron Lennon quiet down the right while Danish right-back Lars Jacobsen turned in another solid performance for his side.

Gabbidon has been plagued by injury for the past three seasons but Upson said: “When his body is right Danny is brilliant. He has pace for a big man and when Aaron Lennon tried to run him down the line, Danny matched him.”
