West Ham skipper Mark Noble has revealed his disappointment at his side’s 1-1 draw against Watford on Saturday.
The 29-year-old took to his personal Twitter account on Sunday to deliver his verdict on the performance, admitting tha,t while they earned a point, it was disappointing not to have won the game.

Watford’s Troy Deeney had given the home side an early lead from the penalty spot, but a goal from substitute Andre Ayew rescued a point for West Ham.
Ayew’s strike was only his second goal for the club since his £20.5million move at the start of the season, and Noble also recognised his contribution in his message to the fans on Twitter.
The Hammers had bombarded the Watford goal in the hope of grabbing a late-winner, but after Michail Antonio’s red-card, Slaven Bilic’s side settled for a point.
Noble also took the opportunity to thank the visiting fans for their support, having had mixed fortunes on the road this season.
After a poor run away from home at the start of the season, West Ham have improved in recent weeks, and now have now picked up seven points on their travels from a possible nine since the new year.
Their recent form has seen them rise to ninth in the Premier League table, having been one point clear of the relegation zone at the start of December.
