Mohamed Diame returned to action with a bang on Tuesday night, coming off the bench in the second half to lay on James Collins' opener against Norwich City before sealing the points with a last-gasp goal of his own.

The Senegal international was delighted to be back to fitness after suffering a nasty gash to the knee in the 0-0 draw at Chelsea at the end of last month, and even happier to play his part in a winning cause.

West Ham moved into the top half of the table with victory over the Canaries, but as the No21 explained, the Hammers will not be resting on their laurels.

Mo, fantastic to see you back after the injury at Chelsea. You made an impact against Norwich, setting one up then scoring the other.

MD: "It was great for me. I wanted to return well as I'd seen every game on TV and that the team were doing well. I was happy to be back in the team and I was determined to do my best for them."

Everyone is playing pretty well at the moment. It's going to be tough to get back into the starting line-up but you certainly gave yourself a good chance with your performance on Tuesday.

MD: "It's good that we've got a bigger squad now, and that players are coming back from injury. Everybody has to give their best and work hard to be in the eleven and that is only good for the team."

Let's talk about the goals tonight. The first one - just talk us through your role for that goal.

MD: "It's one that we work on in training. Mark Noble has the first intention to play it quick to the wingers, so I was ready for that. He gave me the ball and I just crossed it for Ginge, who put his head in there.

"For the second one I got a bit lucky [with the deflection], but it's a goal so I'll take it!"

That's three wins and four clean sheets on the trot. Confidence must be very high at the moment?

MD: "It's great for our confidence. If you want to win games you have to make sure you are strong in defence and not concede goals. If you don't concede you can't lose, so the team is doing well. We need to keep going and stay focused on what we're doing to make sure this break before our next game doesn't stop the momentum."

Adrian in goal has been some player since he came into the side. His saves tonight were very important.

MD: "Yes, I think he was unbelievable on Tuesday, Adrian is a very good goalkeeper and good with his feet as well. He made a lot of saves on Tuesday, and he's done that since he started to play for West Ham. I hope he continues like that.

Just lastly, you're off to Dubai for a few days. There'll be some light training over there and the chance to freshen up a little bit, which is probably important at the moment because it's been an intense month.

MD: "It is good to have the break, but as I said it is important to stay focused on the next match and ensure the gap between matches doesn't affect us. We are doing well and we have to jeep going until the end of the season."
