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

But West Ham roared back and salvaged a potentially invaluable point in the last minute of the 90 when Cresswell's ball into the box was met on the volley by Carroll, who guided the ball beyond a helpless Butland.

The West Ham keeper would have been desperate to impress once again ahead of the World Cup, with England manager Gareth Southgate watching from the stands, but he produced a major error which led to Stoke scoring after 79 minutes.

"Joe Hart faced a few similar shots in first half he gathered them easily, so it unfortunate that one bounced up and caught him out".

Hart was outstanding in the Hammers previous game against Chelsea and earned a man of the match display as his side came away with a crucial point in a draw at Stamford Bridge.

Hart spilled Shaqiri's shot from 18 yards out and substitute Crouch reacted quickest to score on the rebound.

"But if you are a goalkeeper it's going to happen". "We're right in the fight, no mistake about it". I didn't go over the top because I expect him to do that.

"If the supporters do what I think they'll do, we just have to turn up and try and get a win".

"I came in at a late time, but I absolutely love it and we are well in the fight".

"I had the second goal which could've been at the end, there's a shove at the back and that could be a penalty, if not then play on, but he didn't give it and we'll take a point".

- Peter Crouch is now on 16 sub goals in the Premier League (level with Javier Hernandez); only four players have more (Defoe 24, Giroud 19, Kanu 17 and Solskjaer 17). We are playing well, we have got an incredible support behind us, and I am pretty sure come Sunday, there will not be many stadiums rocking the way ours can rock on Sunday.

Moyes had nothing but praise for former Liverpool striker Carroll after he made an immediate impact as a substitute after being sidelined since January with an ankle injury.

"We've still got four games left, we've got to win them, no-one's safe, and we've got to keep working".

Moyes was disappointed to see three efforts ruled out for offside but felt the third one surrounding Carroll, when he handled inside the area, could have gone in his side's favour.

"I've seen a couple of them [disallowed goals] and they look the right decision, I've not seen the one by Andy but the referee has done a good job".
