Lars Jacobsen is eyeing more victories after West Ham notched their first Premier League win of the campaign against Tottenham.
Avram Grant's side lifted themselves off the bottom thanks to Frederic Piquionne's first-half winner in last Saturday's derby.
The welcome win came after a draw at Stoke and Carling Cup victory at Sunderland and Jacobsen hopes the Hammers can now push on.
The defender, who joined from Blackburn on transfer deadline day, told the club's official website: "Everybody is buzzing about the win.
"First of all, it's the three points and the first victory of the season in the Premier League and it also came in a local derby against Spurs and you don't get anything better than that. We're all very pleased.
"Derby matches are the same everywhere. It's a special atmosphere and the stadium is always packed. The games are always tight, as it should be, and that's what football is all about.
"They are the most intense games and that's what you want as a player and as a spectator as well."
West Ham had a dreadful start to the campaign, losing their first four Premier League fixtures before the recent upturn in results.
Jacobsen is now looking to the future and hopes the Hammers can pick up more points as quickly as possible.
He added: "I can only talk about the four games that I've been here, but I think we can take a lot of positives. The Chelsea game, even though we lost, was a positive and from that moment on we seem solid on the pitch.
"Drawing at Stoke and winning at Sunderland gave us a boost in the right direction and we managed to get the three points today.
"Now we have to draw a line and say we need to get some more points on the board and look forward."
Meanwhile, West Ham have been boosted by the news midfielder Kieron Dyer should return against Fulham on Saturday.
The former England man was forced off in the 41st minute against Spurs after feeling ill but he has recovered and should return against the Cottagers at Upton Park.
