McCunnie: Pools can beat Hammers

19 January 2009 05:11
Pools knocked out Premier League opposition in the third round, claiming an impressive 2-0 win against Stoke, and although the Hammers will provide a sterner test, right-back McCunnie admits the League One club are buzzing.

He told the club's official website: "I will show the West Ham players the same respect as I showed the Northampton players on Friday but we want to win this game.

"We want the feel-good factor and we will go into the game knowing we can win - we showed Stoke enough respect and we deserved to beat them.

"On Saturday we definitely have a chance - there have been much bigger giantkillings than Hartlepool beating West Ham."
