The Hammers, reeling from four straight defeats in all competitions and amid
a backdrop of discontent at their new stadium, were down to 10 men and heading
for extra time against the Sky Bet League Two side.

But Payet, on as a half-time substitute, sent them through with a trademark
strike in the sixth minute of stoppage time.

"The main thing was to go through," said Hammers boss Bilic. "We expected an
easier win, with the greatest respect, and not to have to do it in the last

point-blank save, and having used all three subs the labouring hosts found
themselves a man down when left-back Arthur Masuaku was stretchered off.

congratulated for being plucky losers, we came to win the game.

"We knew West Ham were a bit fragile at the moment. People will say they
haven't played well tonight, but that would be disrespectful to us.
