West Ham United manager Tony Marshall has been pleased with his side's unbeaten start to their campaign in the Southern Division of the Premier League.
The Hammers finally gained their first three point haul with a 5-1 win against Crystal Palace on Sunday to follow up a succession of draws in their opening four games.
"We felt we had been unlucky in most of those games and that the elusive win was only round the corner and that proved to be the case with a terrific performance against Crystal Palace," said Tony. "We try to play our football the traditonal West Ham way and our passing and movement has been first class, we just needed that little bit of luck that had deserted us to go our way, as I felt in at least three of the draws we deserved the three points.
"With the win though, confidence is high, we are five matches unbeaten and feel we can match anyone in the league when we get the ball on the deck."
The Hammers will however be on the look out for a new regular first team goalkeeper after last season's imcumbent custodian Paris Smith recently took on a new position in the police force which leaves her unavailable for the full campaign.
"Paris had a great season last year but this gives us an opportuntity to bring in someone new and we are scouring around to find someone who fits the bill, although we have several promising young keepers in our new development team who will be itching to show what they can do," added Marshall who also felt his squad would benefit from more firepower upfront.
"We have been creating the chances, so as any manager will tell you the goals will come - it's when you're not making the chances that you worry - but I would be lying if I said I was not on the lookout for an experienced striker to help finish off some of the flowing football we are producing."
