Laws enjoys maiden victory

Burnley's Brian Laws was delighted to secure his first win as Clarets manager with a 2-1 victory at home to West Ham United.

Goals from David Nugent and Danny Fox were enough to seal a crucial three points and move Laws' men out of the relegation places.

He said afterwards:"It was a huge three points and when you talk about games you have to win, this was one of them. There was so much pressure but the players were magnificent.

"David Nugent scored a fantastic goal and it set the tone of the game. It gave us great belief, because we haven't been in this position for such a long time.

"We've got to make this an uncomfortable place for any team coming here and the fans play a huge part in that. To play under that kind of pressure proves the players can get results.

"Danny (Fox) had a fantastic debut and you couldn't ask for more. He's a smart acquisition and there's no doubt he'll help give this team a different dimension.

"All the time we've been hunting for our first win there's been no sign of panic. If you stay calm and focused you've got a chance and we showed that that's what it takes to get results."
