Moyes gives injury updates as we aim to beat bogey team

By Hughie Southon
David Moyes admits the team have a massive job on their hands if they are to overcome Brighton and Hove Albion in tomorrow’s Premier League game.
But the manager refuses to accept that he is the only one who has found life incredibly hard against the south coast team.
He also revealed what Claret and Hugh said earlier this morning- that both Kurt Zouma and Maxwel Cornet are getting closer to a comeback but that is unlikely to be as early as tomorrow.
Albion’s form could be described as patchy over the last seven games although they have won three whilst losing two and drawing two.
The Hammers – despite the FA Cup defeat at Old Trafford – look in better form and hopefully can add to their points tally as they look to get away from the foot of the table.
And discussing the match at his presser this morning Moyes said: “Brighton have been a bit of a bogey team for us and we have to overcome that and change it if we can.
“Recently we’ve had a draw away from home at Newcastle, and a draw at Leeds United. We’ve got to find a way of picking up points away from home and we have to keep on doing that.”
“They’re doing a very good job at the moment. It’s not just been me it’s been hard for against Brighton, but many managers.
“Kurt Zouma is doing better and Maxi is coming on. We’ll see how he is and hopefully we’ll get them closer to the first team.”
And on Danny Ings he added: “What I’ve seen is what I expected and what we hope we continue to get from Danny. He’s scored goals throughout his career and we hope that carries on here.”
