Reid insists Cisse effort did not go in

5 May 2013 18:41

Winston Reid is adamant he prevented Papiss Cisse's effort from going in during West Ham's 0-0 draw with Newcastle on Saturday.

The Senegal striker looked to have given the visitors the lead at Upton Park as his scuffed effort dribbled towards the line, but the New Zealand defender recovered to hack the ball away, with replays proving inconclusive as to whether the ball had crossed the line or not.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew was furious after the game that the goal had not been given, but Reid believes the right call was made.

"No, it was not in," he said. "I am dead honest and I know it wasn't in. My foot was actually on the line and I got the ball away in time, which was good.

"As a defender you are trying to save goals and, fortunately enough, we came off at the end having not conceded any."

The point boosts West Ham's chances of finishing in the top half in their first campaign back in the Premier League - a position that Reid insists the club are determined to keep hold of.

"We still want to do well and finish as high as possible," he said.

"We want to finish in the top 10. That's been our aim for the whole season, so we'll be disappointed not to finish there when we've got ourselves in a really good position.

"These games are about enjoying it, really. We can go out with no pressure and enjoy it and try to finish as high as possible. That's why we work so hard each year - to get out of relegation and look up the table."
