Downing delighted to again get on West Ham scoresheet

West Ham United midfielder Stewart Downing was delighted to score his fifth goal of the season in victory over Hull City.

The 30-year-old's current goal tally is already markedly improved on the two that he managed last term and the Middlesbrough-born midfielder believes West Ham's many goalscorers is a recipe for success.

He told West Ham TV: "I always wanted to get more goals. Sunday was about the team winning but if we can chip in with goals all round the team, it's obviously healthier for us and it gets us further up the league.

"I think that's the pleasing thing, we've got goals in and around the team. If it's not Andy, Enner or me, we've got other lads. Diafra [Sakho] was missing on Sunday, so we have to step up. If we all chip in, we finish in a better position. Simple."
