David Gold has labelled West Ham’s narrow 1-0 win against Burnley as “not a convincing victory”.
Captain Mark Noble bundled home the ball from close range after Tom Heaton had saved his penalty in first-half stoppage time, which was enough to secure a narrow win.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, Gold was fully aware that the win was not emphatic but was happy to take home the points nonetheless.
What a fantastic night for results. It wasn't a convincing victory over Burnley but it was a welcome 3 points. Well done lads. dg

Just their fourth Premier League victory of the season, Slaven Bilic’s side have pushed themselves away from a relegation scrap for the time being.
The Hammers sit in 15th place, four points above the drop zone, and will be looking to climb into the top half of the table as they face Swansea, Hull and Leicester in their next three games.
With a number of injured stars returning to full fitness in the likes of Andy Carroll, Aaron Cresswell and Andre Ayew, fans will be hoping their side can turn their woeful start around.
The Hammers play Mike Phelan’s Hull next on Saturday, and are expected to secure just their fourth Premier League win at the London Stadium this season.
Chairman Gold will be in the stands as Bilic looks to secure three points that will push the Hammers into 13th if other results go their way.
