Winston Reid will be looking to carry on where he left off at Leicester City in Saturday's Season Finale with Hull City.
The New Zealand international had another superb evening at the King Power Stadium and was on hand to tap home his third goal of the season from just yards out. The strike saw the Hammers' equalise on the night before Jack Collison wrapped up all three points with a superb 25-yard thunderbolt that flew past Kasper Schmeichel just before the hour mark.
The win was the Hammers' 13th on the road this season and was enough to keep the pressure on Southampton, who sit in the last automatic promotion spot - two points ahead - with just one game to go.
"It was a deserved win in my opinion," Reid said. "I thought we had the vast majority of chances in the game. Obviously the last ten minutes was always going to be hectic. They put us under a bit of late pressure, but in the end I think we could have scored a couple more goals."
"We all wanted to go into the last game with something to play for. Hopefully Southampton will stuff up and then we'll be ready to pounce, and hopefully score enough goals to go up."
It was another great performance from the central defender, who has grabbed his first-team opportunities with both hands since coming back from a head injury sustained whilst on duty with the All-Whites back in February. With the Olympics just around the corner, Reid is hoping to continue his formidable form and celebrate a successful promotion with a call up to the New Zealand squad for the tournament.
"It's something that I'd love to do. Especially as it's in London, it'll be an amazing opportunity but we'll have to see."
