West Ham captain Noble relieved with landmark goal

West Ham captain Mark Noble admitted relief after their 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace.

Not only was the captain happy to see his side secure a hard-earned point at Selhurst Park, but he also made it 13 consecutive seasons with a competitive goal in Claret and Blue when he opened the scoring with a first-half penalty.

With 38 Premier League strikes to his name, the 31-year-old ranks behind only Paolo Di Canio and Carlton Cole in the Club's all-time leading charts in the competition.

“It's been on my mind a little bit, to be honest, because I missed a good chance against Liverpool and then I think I've scored in virtually every other Premier League season I've played in, so I didn't have many games left to go!

“It's a little bit of a relief for me, to be honest."
