Carroll spares Hart's blushes as West Ham secure late draw against Stoke

Lambert said afterwards: "It is a blow because we were so close to winning".

Andy Carroll's dramatic late equaliser boosted West Ham's Premier League survival hopes - and took Stoke City closer to the Championship.

He told Sky Sports: "I thought we played well throughout, of course [Peter] Crouch comes on and scores".

He said: "It was disappointing for us as we'd had a few other chances and a few goals disallowed".

Crouch had been on the pitch nine minutes when he pounced to turn in the rebound after England goalkeeper Joe Hart spilled a shot from Xherdan Shaqiri. We're willing to fight and we have got the supporters behind us. Yet the game lived down to expectations during the opening 45 minutes - two ordinary sides huffing and puffing without any real wit or creativity - and when the half-time announcer introduced a West Ham fan who had flown in from Australia it was tempting to wonder whether he might have chosen a more attractive fixture. We've had some really good games and we've just been really unfortunate with Lady Luck.

The game's first chance arrived after 30 minutes when Joao Mario played in Arnautovic, who dragged his close-range effort wide of the mark.

Russia may have tampered with chemical attack site: US envoy
Consequently, the anxiety in Moscow centered on the possibility of strikes on Russian assets or advisors ( Gazeta.ru , April 12). Western governments called on Russian Federation and Syria to give unfettered access to Douma, the site of the alleged attack.

That means that Rangers should definitely make a move for him in the summer as he would be a clear improvement on someone like Cummings and they should be able to get him in on loan if Morelos stays, or permanently if the Colombian is sold to China. We're playing well enough and I'm really proud of the team.

"As long as we don't give up, if we keep that level of commitment and performance then nobody can ever point the finger at us. With the atmosphere in stadium, it is a hard place to come but I thought we were excellent".

"For the team, for us, at the time it was hard because it meant we had to go and look to change after we had been the dominant team, apart from the first five or 10 minutes of the second half". But performance-wise it was very good.

"All the subs who came on made a big difference and helped, we've not had that a lot this season so we're glad to have them back".

"I haven't seen the last one which seems to be the most dubious of them all".

The Hammers go into their match on Monday evening off a one-all draw against Chelsea preceded by a 3-0 win over Southampton.
