Tim Sherwood says Aston Villa "scrapped it out" to secure a 1-0 win over West Ham United at Villa Park.
The hosts went ahead before half-time when midfielder Tom Cleverley turned in Jack Grealish's cut-back to score his third goal in successive games.
West Ham chased an equaliser in the second half and striker Enner Valencia had a headed goal ruled out for offside, but Sherwood's team held on to move four points clear of the bottom three.
