West Ham keeper Adrian shakes off heroics for Stoke point

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian shrugged off his heroics for their 2-2 draw at Stoke City.

The Spanish stopper had to make outstanding saves to deny Mame Diouf, Jonathan Walters and Geoff Cameron as the Hammers battled back from 2-0 down to draw at the Britannia Stadium.

He told "The team was happy with the point because we stood up in the second half. We didn't play well in the first half, and the real West Ham team came out in the second half.

"This is my job. I try in every game to help my teammates and on Saturday I helped us to get one point.

"They probably deserved to be in front at half time because we weren't playing well, but in the second half the team was stronger and made very good chances for goals and thankfully we scored two.

"All saves are hard, but I think the most important was in the last minute of the first half [from Diouf], because it meant we went in at half-time at 1-0 instead of two."
