By Hughie Southon

West Ham take on a Nottingham Forest team which has just one away win to its credit this season when they arrive at the London Stadium this weekend.

Despite a 1-1 draw against Manchester City last weekend the midlands outfit still only have a win over Southampton to their credit on the road this season,

However, the last five games have seen them win just two from seven in all competitions with Leicester City and Leeds the defeated sides.

It was described to us last night by a top source at the Hammers as one of our most critical clashes in years. Another defeat being described as catastrophic.

With the Hammers unable to attract a suitable long term manager to the club we are relying on David moyes of course to get a victory which could lift us ino 15th place if results go our way,

With just that one away win nder their belts Forest are a team which must be beaten
