West Ham United manager Gianfranco Zola remains confident that his side will avoid relegation from the Premier League, ahead of a crucial clash with Wolves on Tuesday evening. The Hammers are just three points clear of the drop zone going into the game on home turf, with the visitors a point and a place better off. Zola told the club's official website: "I am very confident and we have a lot of players coming back to fitness in the squad. I know my players are determined to do well and show their ability. "They know it will be a big crowd on Tuesday and will be up for the battle. It will be a challenge from the first whistle and we will be doing our best. "Make no mistake, I am not pleased at all to see us in this position. In these moments though, we have to keep our composure. "We need to do the right things at the right time and not get too emotional. Otherwise you cannot improve the situation. "After the weekend, the table hasn't changed too much which is a good thing. However, I am only thinking about my team and what we have to do. "Everything is up to us and I will take a lot of positives into Tuesday night."
