We need to win but they will want to win and they are at home. We have to come out on top. "Everyone in the club wants West Ham to succeed. This was our target [from the beginning]. We thought things would be different but this is the situation. "We can win the last two games. We are playing good football and creating chances but we have to get the ball in the net. That is what counts at the end of the day. I hope we play like we have been and just take 50 per cent of our chances against Wigan. "I know the supporters look at the table and see we are not in an easy situation but they will know it can look different if we win against Wigan. I believe we can do it." The Hammers have sold out their away allocation for the game enxt weekend after the club put on free coaches to encourage supporters to attend.
