'I'm just doing my job', says penalty hero Adrian

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian refused to take the credit for West Ham taking a point away from this afternoon's clash with relegation favourites Queens Park Rangers.

Despite offering little in attack the Hammers escaped Loftus Road with a point - thanks in no small part to the goalkeeper's heroics, once again.

Adrian - who was the star of the show in January's third round FA Cup penalty shootout win over Everton - saved Charlie Austin's 23rd minute penalty to preserve a point for Sam Allardyce's out-of-form side.

And he revealed after the game that he felt he had 'psyched' out Austin as the two exchanged words seconds before the spot kick was taken. "Every time I face a penalty I try to put doubt in the other player's mind," he said. "Luckily for me, I saved the penalty!

"But this is my job, to makes the save, to try every game to help my team mates. It was a hard game here today as they are fighting relegation which makes it more difficult. But we've kept the clean sheet away from home and gained one more point.

"We started the season very well but now, in the second part of the season, we've not been playing so well. But we'll fight for the best position until the end."
