West Ham Concede They Were Lucky
Alan Curbishley admitted after yesterday's game that West Ham were second best in their Carling Cup tie.
"Coventry were the better side, we all know that. We didn't win a header, we hardly won a tackle, people were running off us, and then when we did get the ball back we found it very difficult to keep it.
"All the things that we were hoping to do to Coventry, they did to us. Great credit to them, they played exceptionally well.
"We got a bit of luck, but you get so many knocks in this game, you take it. We've got through, and we'll look forward to see who we get in the next round."
