Wayne: Think Positive

Wayne Quinn admits West Ham should have won comfortably on Wednesday night - but is hoping there will be a reaction against Burnley on Saturday.

"I felt we were the better team in the first half, creating three or four half decent chances, and it was frustrating," he says.

"We got the goal, but didn't really capitalise, then they came at us in the second half as we expected - then it was a mistake from which they scored.

"Perhaps at the end we were hanging on a little bit and 1-1 was a fair result, but we felt we were defending well.

"They have had two chances, scored and hit the post, but we just didn't finish our chances - touch wood when that changes we will get a handful and really punish a team."

Wayne, who extended his loan spell from St James' Park - where he has been since January 2001 - after initially signing for Newcastle on loan before making the move permanent in an £800,000 deal from Sheffield United - was dispossessed following a corner he had taken in the second half, and Norwich raced to the other end to grab the equaliser.

Of that, he says:

"I took the corner and it came back where I couldn't hit it first time; I took a touch to bring it to the side and he has nicked it.

"They have scored but we have had three or four opportunities to clear the ball but people will obviously remember I gave the ball away, but I am not going to dwell on that.

"I enjoyed the game and as I say feel we defended well; but that's life, they nicked a point and we have to get on with Saturday now.

"People have made bigger mistakes in life than what I did; I tried something that didn't come off and there were chances to clear.

"Crouchy has got in the box, and what is he - six foot nine or something stupid like that?

"It was a good header, and you have to give him some credit because he has beaten England's number one."

Wayne, who played 15 Premiership games and nine cup matches for the Geordies, is putting the game behind him, and adds:

"We have to get on with it now, bounce back, and get three points on Saturday as we did beating Crystal Palace after drawing at home to Millwall.

"We got the next six points after that and we have got to do the same, but the lads are gutted because it is a game we should have won comfortably."
