No fresh worries for Hammers
Manager Sam Allardyce confirmed West Ham have no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday's vital Barclays Premier League home clash with Fulham.
He admitted his side's shortage of goals has seriously hindered their start to the season and insisted they must start to convert their chances if they are to climb the table.
West Ham clash with Crystal Palace on Tuesday night, with Allardyce targeting two quickfire derby victories to ease the pressure around Upton Park.
He said: "We're ready for two big games, especially this first one against Fulham.
"None of us expected to be where we are at this stage of the season, but the league table tells the story.
"Performances are okay for a while, but it's all about results.
"In general our performances have been great, but we're not capitalising on our good play and scoring the goals we've needed.
"It's the precious three points you're searching for, that's what makes the difference.
"You can run with a certain amount of draws but eventually you have to start winning."
West Ham and Fulham are locked on 10 points apiece, with Allardyce's side sat just above the Craven Cottage men and one place outside the relegation zone.
Allardyce said he still hopes one big victory can transform West Ham's season.
He said: "My surprise is that I thought our win against Tottenham would kick us on to a good run of wins. It hasn't happened but we've got to believe we'll start putting away our chances.
"We've got to start converting our opportunities.
"Against Fulham, both teams are having a struggle at the minute.
"We hope we can regain our defensive solidity and maybe exploit a defensive weakness in them, after they have leaked 12 goals in their last four games."
Manager Martin Jol admits two back-to-back London derbies could determine his future as Fulham manager.
Fulham follow up the Upton Park clash by heading to Tottenham on Wednesday following a desperate run of five defeats in a row which have left them occupying a relegation position in the Barclays Premier League.
The Fulham faithful have begun to vent their anger, chanting 'Jol out' during and after matches and players such as Costa Rican winger Bryan Ruiz have borne the brunt of some lacerating criticism.
Jol, whose side have just 10 points from 12 matches, remains confident of escaping his predicament, but said: "You don't have to talk to an owner to be aware of the fact that you need points to get back to a winning culture, to a little bit of stability.
"You can lose once or twice but you can't lose four or five times on the trot. That will put you in a bad position.
"One win will get us back among others and take the pressure off and then hopefully we could have a good run like last year."
Asked if he believed his position as manager was safe, Jol added: "If we win, yeah. If we don't, I don't know. It is always difficult.
"If I was on the Board or an owner I would be worrying.
"We need wins. Every game is almost a must-win game. That is what I have told everyone.
"If you are at a club like Fulham or Stoke or Swansea you always get times when things could go wrong and you have to try to get back to winning ways."
"Who will win the PL title this season - 2013/14?"
