West Ham United attacker Andre Ayew has called on his teammates to use their first league win against Huddersfield Town as a spring board for the season.

Huddersfield are in form and will be tough nuts to crack, but the Hammers need a win and have the quality to finally pick up their first points of the season.

Five minutes later, the hosts doubled their advantage through Ayew, who slotted from inside the six-yard area, following a corner.

Javier Hernandez hit the bar in the first half, in one of West Ham's few clear-cut chances.

Slaven Bilic's West Ham secured a much needed win after a torrid run of results in their opening three games.

Ayew believes Monday's victory will give the squad plenty of belief heading to The Hawthorns to face Tony Pulis's resilient West Bromwich Albion side on Saturday afternoon. "I really have a feeling, and I see the players, we trained here yesterday and the day before, we like it more and more", he said.

The team certainly did that, but it did take a some good fortune with the first goal deflection to get them in front. "It is my birthday today and this is a great, great present for me".

Winston Reid, who was stretchered off before the start of their trip to Southampton with a calf injury, is also expected to return for Bilic's side having missed the past two games with the problem.

In the build-up to the West Ham v Huddersfield match, it was widely reported that Slaven Bilic could lose his job were the Hammers to have been defeated. "We made so many unforced errors".

"We are not going to get carried away, there is a lot more hard work to go, which hopefully we can take that to West Brom".
