Scott Parker believes attack could be the best policy if West Ham are to drag themselves off the foot of the Barclays Premier League table.
The Hammers have managed just one win this season to prop up the table with seven points after 11 games.
Their nine league goals is also the second fewest in the Premier League this term, but Parker thinks the Upton Park strikers can inspire a rise up the table after an improved performance in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Birmingham.
Parker admitted that represented points lost for his side, but found enough encouragement in their attacking play to suggest they can put their early-season malaise behind them when West Brom visit east London.
"I enjoyed [the way we attacked]," Parker said. "It was good. I thought we looked a threat on the break on Saturday and every time we went forward we looked like we could score.
"That was the case in the first half and second half, so that was pleasing."
