From the Boardroom - David Sullivan

West Ham United Joint-Chairman David Sullivan looks back at the 0-0 draw with Stoke City

I thought the whole team had an impressive display against Stoke on Saturday and it is just a matter of time before our luck turns.

Just like the game against Manchester United, we could have easily had all three points and I am sure that Slaven Bilic would have been pleased with the effort that the players have shown in recent weeks.

Mauro Zarate was desperately unlucky not to get the goal of the season as we hit the post again and how we didn't win the game in the last 20 seconds when the ball was cleared off the line twice, I still don't know!

I will mention it again but over a season for every time you hit the post you score four goals, so we are now due 15 or 20 before we hit the post again!

Stoke nearly got lucky when a wicked deflection ended up in the top corner, but Adrian managed to deflect the ball onto the crossbar.

It was pleasing to see the side come away with our second consecutive clean sheet and I thought it was a very good defensive display.

James Collins came back into the side and looked good alongside Angelo Ogbonna and James Tomkins once again showed his versatility with another solid display at right back.

We have been suffering with injuries over the last few weeks but it was very pleasing to see Enner Valencia back on the pitch in the second half.

We have been missing Enner for a large part of the season so we all hope he can have a successful return to action and play a big part for us in the second half of the campaign.

Manuel Lanzini is also close to making a return and I know that Slaven has said that Dimitri is ahead of schedule so that is a major boost for everyone at the Club.

We have another big game against Swansea on Sunday and I know the management will be working hard with the players as we look to get back on the winning trail at the weekend.
