West Ham star Robert Snodgrass has reminded his team-mates that they will have to perform to the top of their game if they are to grab a win at Hull City on Saturday.
The Hammers go to the KCOM Stadium for a Premier League clash in the knowledge that they have failed to pick up a win in their past five top flight games; gleaning just two points from a possible 15.
And Slaven Bilic’s troops are eager to record a triumph against Marco Silva’s side to get their season back on track and deliver a strong finish for fans.
Snodgrass, who moved to the London Stadium from the Tigers in January, is adamant that the Hammers can bounce back after their recent lean spell.
He said: “We need to get back to winning ways. Especially away from home, we’ve done well, so we need to try and win and kick on towards the end of the season. 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!”
Scotland ace Snodgrass has lifted the lid on just how industrious the players have been in their quest to get back to winning ways; and he admits that while it will be nice to see some familiar faces on his return to Humberside, there is no room for sentiment with regards the task in and.
He added: “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.”
