We're close to turning corner - Grant

Avram Grant continues to defiantly insist West Ham will soon start to climb the Barclays Premier League table - once they finally secure another victory. The Hammers remain rooted the foot of the table following the 2-2 draw with West Brom at Upton Park, which stretched their winless run to six league games. Co-owner David Sullivan had claimed West Ham needed to collect "at least seven points" from the run of games against Birmingham, West Brom, Blackpool at Upton Park on Saturday and then away at Liverpool - or "we know we have a real problem and that we have to shuffle the pack". Under-fire Grant, however, continues to remain positive, despite his side's predicament - now a point behind Wolves, but still four from safety. "We are very close to it - when the first win comes we will win more and we are playing football to win games," the Israeli said. "We keep our style of football. It is not going like we want but we are playing well and that is what frustrates us more than anything. "The fans understand, they want more points, but no-one more than myself and the players and staff want them. Everybody can see we play good games of football. From my experience, if we continue like this then the points will come."
