Slaven Bilic, former Hull City top scorer Robert Snodgrass and the West Ham squad will be entirely aware of the task they face when they travel to the KCOM Stadium this weekend.
And make no mistake this game is no pushover despite the hosts sitting in 18th place with their t home fearsome pretty fearsome to say the least.
They are unbeaten in seven games on their own manor which include victories over Liverpool and Manchester United with 14 goals scored and six against.
Three points will be a formidable task for the Irons with the expectations being two wins form the next four games,
Snodgrass commented: ““We’re going to need to be at our very best. They’ve got some great players and I think, because I’ve been there, that they work so hard behind the scenes and are a hard-working team.
“They’ve not really got the results they deserve in the first part of the season, in my honest opinion. We played really well in stages, but never got the results. They’ve managed to get those results over the last couple of months, especially at home they’ve been very good.
“They’re all good lads and Marco Silva and the staff they brought in are good people, but from an individual point of view, I want West Ham to win!
“I see how hard my teammates and the backroom staff work here every day and West Ham is my team now, so I want to see West Ham win. It will be good to play against them and I’ve got a lot of friends there, but it’s football and business at the end of the day, and I’m sure they’ll be thinking exactly the same thing.
“They’ll be scrapping for every point they possibly can, as will we as want to get further up the table, so it should be a good game.”
