Matt Jarvis saluted the spirit of his West Ham United teammates to come through a testing period with flying colours.

The Hammers found themselves in the Barclays Premier League's bottom three prior to January's daunting trip to Stamford Bridge, but have been on the road to recovery ever since.

Tuesday's 2-0 win over Norwich City was the Hammers' third in succession and sees Sam Allardyce's men within touching distance of the top ten. The 27-year-old winger insists the dramatic upturn is just reward for the squad's work ethic, not least the collective will to continue racking up the clean sheets.

"Tuesday was a fantastic result and hopefully this run can continue," Jarvis told whufc.com. "It shows the commitment of everyone in the squad and that everyone's fighting for each other, which has culminated in the clean sheets and the wins that we've had recently.

"We've shown such commitment in defending our goal and we've been able to attack and get the vital goals that have won us the games.

"We've been working so hard to push us right up the league and eleventh at the moment is not too bad at all!

"Tuesday really keeps the spirit high in the camp and gives us a real confidence boost. We've got a fantastic squad and everyone who plays is doing their utmost to make sure that they stay in the team."

Jarvis also joined the ever-growing queue to praise in-form goalkeeper Adrian, whose saves paved the way for the Hammers' late show against the Canaries.

He continued: "He was superb. He made a number of great saves that kept us right in it and then obviously we were able to get the goals that won us the game.

"He showed patience at the start when he wasn't in the team and when he got to play he did well. Ever since he's nailed down his spot he's been outstanding. As you saw against Norwich, he kept us in the game a number of times."

Adrian's heroics meant the Hammers were able to head off to warm-weather training in fine fettle, with the focus firmly on bagging a fourth successive league win upon their return.   

"With a break coming up you want to leave that with a good result and not be itching to play the next game having lost. Hopefully we'll keep the run going when we get back.

"It's nice to get a change from the rain, which has been so bad here, so hopefully it will be nice to get a bit of warmth and the sun on your back. It's all about the change of scenery and just staying positive."
