Ledley: Win all important

Ledley King may have scored his first goal in three years last night - but he insists it doesn't matter who scores the goals as long as we win the games.

The 2-0 victory over West Ham at Upton Park sees us leapfrog our London rivals into 15th place as the battle to pull away from the lower reaches of the league table continues.

Ledley opened the scoring with a powerful header on 68 minutes before Jamie O'Hara came off the bench to seal the points late on.

But although our skipper has stressed how important it was to break the deadlock against the Hammers last night, he said: "It's not important who scores the goals as long as someone does, but on this occasion it was me.

"The first goal was always going to be important, we got that, and then from there I thought we bossed the game.

"You have to ride your luck at times away from home, but we dominated the first half especially and moved the ball well in midfield. The subs came on and played their part as well, so it was a real squad effort.

"The league's so tight that we're not out of trouble yet, but three points was a must last night and we're pleased to have got it."
