Mark Noble says he understands why supporters are frustrated - but urged the fans to stay behind the team.

West Ham's club captain, speaking to Sky Sports following this afternoon's demoralising 3-0 defeat at home to Burnley admitted that there had been a level of unrest for a while, but insisted that the players need their backing.

And he also defended his decision to throw a supporter who had invaded the pitch to the ground. "We have got to protect ourselves, " he said. "There were a number of fans who got onto the pitch, but if someone approaches me personally I'm going to defend myself."

To hear what Noble had to say, listen to the following interview with Sky Sports.
