‘Wrong decisions’ Moyes reacts to wasteful win as Hammers seal last 16 spot


David Moyes reacts to a wasteful West Ham win over Silkeborg in the Europa Conference League as the Hammers seal last 16 spot.

West Ham knew they needed just a point against the Danes to win the group and make the last 16 in March.

Silkeborg are nowhere near the level of opposition West Ham will face in the Premier League.

But the Danes gave the Hammers a tough game in the reverse fixture and scored 10 goals in two games against FCSB.

In truth it was another drab match at the London Stadium as the Hammers ran out 1-0 winners over Silkeborg thanks to a Manuel Lanzini penalty.

That was not helped by West Ham’s continued profligacy in front of goal – a running theme this season.

Said Benrahma, Pablo Fornals and Conor Coventry all wasted golden chances to make this more comfortable.

And some of the decision making in the final third was seriously questionable from the Hammers.

Make no mistake if West Ham don’t become more ruthless they will continue to struggle for results against the better sides in the Premier League.

But it was a case of job done as West Ham secured a place in the last 16 of European competition for the second season running – a remarkable achievement.

And the Scot believes there were too many ‘wrong decisions’ in West Ham’s attacking play.

“I thought parts of our performance was very good, I thought our finishing needed to tidy up, I thought we had lots of opportunities again,” Moyes said on BT Sport.

“We didn’t create clear enough chances, but I thought we did enough to get two or three goals and we were the better side for most of the game.

“I think we gave the ball away, I think we made the wrong decisions in the final third, didn’t weight the pass correctly, didn’t make the cut back well enough, didn’t pick the cross out well enough. I think all of those added together cost us having more clear cut chances.”
