Andy Carroll fired West Ham to their first victory since New Year's Day and then targeted three more morale-boosting points against Aston Villa.

Carroll made a successful return from a nine-week injury lay-off on Saturday, heading the Hammers to a much-needed 1-0 win over Swansea at Upton Park.

"The points had dried up a bit so the lads are delighted with the win today," Carroll told West Ham TV after the match.
