Grant sees light at the end of the West Ham tunnel

Avram Grant is delighted to see his West Ham side enjoy their first success of the season with a win over local rivals Tottenham. That victory helped to lift the club off the foot of the Premier League table and rekindled belief within a star-studded squad.

Grant, who took charge at Upton Park over the summer, hopes the corner has now been turned.

The Israeli believes hard work and a determined attitude will be key to his plans this term, and he was pleased to see those attributes on display against Spurs.

"We have a project, not just for one year, but to put West Ham in the right place," Grant said.

"We don't have a lot of money to spend so we choose hungry players who want to succeed. You saw (Victor) Obinna, you saw (Frederic) Piquionne."
