Grant urges Hammers fans to keep the faith

Manager Avram Grant retains faith that his West Ham United side are on the right track and will soon start to pick up wins to drag themselves away from the foot of the Premier League table. The Hammers have won just once in 12 league games so far this season, with a 2-2 home draw with West Brom leaving them four points adrift of safety. However, Grant is confident that his team's fortunes will turn around sooner rather than later. He said after the clash with the Baggies: "We are very close to it - when the first win comes, we will win more and we are playing football to win games. "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. "The reaction after they scored was good to get to 2-1 and then we had a great chance to make it 3-1 and dominated the game. "But we will, of course, analyse the game and see what we can do better. The way we have conceded goals is something we need to think about."
