Crystal Palace manager Hodgson: Draw with West Ham was 'fair'

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson believes Tuesday night's 1-1 draw with West Ham United was a 'fair' result.

The Eagles took the lead through Christian Benteke but were hauled back in by the hosts when Mark Noble converted from the penalty spot just before half-time.

Hodgson said: "At half-time 1-1 was probably fair, we probably hadn't done enough to deserve that lead.

"We looked dangerous in the second half and threatening but never led to clear-cut goalscoring chances.

Away from home, playing a team that's having a good spell, I am happy with that.

He also confirmed Bakary Sako injured his ankle during the encounter.

He added: "The negative is it looks like we might have lost another player in Bakary Sako. His ankle injury might be serious, that will be a massive blow."
