Collins eyes six points

James Collins insists West Ham will pick up points from the upcoming clashes with Swansea and Burnley.

The Hammers travel to Wales this weekend aware that a victory will move them six points clear of the relegation zone, before hosting the Clarets at the London Stadium the following week.

And Collins is confident that he and his team-mates have the momentum needed to put together two victories, despite last weekend’s 4-1 loss to Liverpool.

Collins told the club’s official website: “We’re going to have to go to Swansea and then host Burnley in the next couple of weeks and pick up our points from those games.

“I said to the boys in the dressing room that we cannot dwell on what happened at Liverpool, as better teams than us have gone to Anfield and been steamrolled, so we’ve got to look at the video, look at what we did right and what we did wrong and move on to a huge game in Wales on Saturday.

“Morale in the camp is good. We had a good result against Watford and then a couple of weeks of good training, so spirits are high. We’ve got some great characters in that dressing room and we need to focus on Swansea, go there and get a good result.”

  1. I hope Ginge is right 36 points would really take the pressure off probably one more win would be enough for safety.

  2. Absolutely 32, I suppose it’s come that time again in the season when it’s squeaky bum time ! !
    This has definitely a season that we’d all like to see the back of with all the problems surrounding the club ….But they are OUR problems and I’m sure or hope that most of the problems on the pitch / players will be sorted come the summer…All the other issues are down to them persons upstairs who need to implement certain measures to stop the silly issues that seem to surround us each week …..
    Get them things ironed out and we’ll all be able to move forward and upwards …..
    So come on , Pull your damn fingers out …

  3. Be careful Pele! You’ll be called a liar for not keeping promises if you don’t secure those six points.
