Advocaat 'happy' with Sunderland effort

New Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat is "happy" with the effort of his players despite them conceding a late goal to lose 1-0 at West Ham.

In a match of few chances, Jermaine Defoe missed a good opportunity for the Black Cats before Diafra Sakho lashed home with just two minutes remaining.

The defeat means Guus Hiddink remains the only Dutch manager to win his first Premier League game in charge. It also continues Sunderland's poor recent form, which has seen them win just one of their last 13 Premier League matches.
