Positive Hammers take heart

12 Mar 2007 - 12:10:33

Assistant-manager Keith Peacock has backed West Ham United to avoid relegation and claims a "tigerish attitude" will save the Premiership's basement club from dropping out of the top-flight.

Peacock claims the ailing Hammers took a great deal of heart from their dramatic 4-3 defeat by Spurs on their last outing.

The result left the Upton Park club ten points adrift of safety but Alan Curbishley's number two has backed his side to bounce back against Blackburn Rovers next weekend.

"The spirit we showed and the football ability that we showed (against Spurs) was there for all to see," he told the club's official website.

"In our disappointment, deep down inside there's a feeling that we're starting to get something going.

"With that type of tigerish attitude and bravery on the field we've got a chance.

"We made mistakes against Tottenham, obviously, because we conceded four goals.

"But there were a lot of encouraging signs. We have to go into each game now treating it as a one-off. If we can win it we live to fight another day."
