Cresswell worried about goal-shy Hammers

Aaron Cresswell has admitted that the goals have dried up for the Hammers after another setback in the club’s bid to finish in the top four.

The Hammers were held to a 1-1 draw by relegation-threatened Newcastle on Saturday, and are in danger of slipping down the table after a poor run of form that has seen us win just one of our last five games.

In the last few weeks, the Irons have actually been hitting the back of the net with some regularity, scoring against Newcastle, twice against Leicester, and twice against both Leeds and Norwich.

However, they have not led to wins, bar the Canaries result when the Hammers won 2-0, and Cresswell admits that the Irons need to be scoring more regularly to get back to winning ways.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he said:¬†“The goals have dried up a bit. We started the season flying, scoring more than two a game at one point and they have dried up, but look, we’ve got to back to the same level so we’ll work on that in training this week.

“It’s frustrating again to just take one point today, but we’ve got to move on. I still think there is plenty of games left in the league and today’s game is not going to decide where we’re going to finish.”

Cress has also demanded that the team regroup ahead of the clash with Wolves next weekend, which has become a must-win.

He added:¬†“There are still 12 games to go and plenty of points to play for, so let’s regroup and go again.”
