It was a familiar story for West Ham United on Saturday as they gave a defensively resolute display against Aston Villa, but we unable to cash in at the other end.

Saturday's stalemate was a fourth 0-0 draw in ten Barclays Premier League games this season, and a sixth clean sheet for Sam Allardyce's men.

For central defender Winston Reid, the lack of goals conceded is a source of pride, but he admits the clean sheets would mean an awful lot more had the Hammers been able to turn some of those draws into victories.

"It's a little disappointing [that we couldn't get the three points], but at least we didn't lose," he said.

"It's good that we're keeping clean sheets but I think that we need to start putting the ball in the back of the net.

"The boys are working hard on that and we're trying our best and training to make it a success. Hopefully we can show that next Saturday.

"Every single game is important in the league, we try to do our best. Lately our form hasn't been that good, we'd have liked to have won on Saturday. It wasn't to be, but at least we got a point out of it."
