After three successive defeats, against Everton, Stoke and latterly Manchester United, West Ham will be hoping to stop the rot against Hull City this Wednesday evening.
Those three defeats, after we were going so well with a run that saw Sam Allardyce named Barclay`s Manager of the Month, have left us looking nervously over our shoulders at the relegation battle below us.
At the moment we have several points advantage over those who are struggling, although that six point gap could be eroded if Sunderland were to win the two games they have in hand over us, although perceive that to be unlikely.
However, our club captain, Kevin Nolan, is wary of poor refereeing decisions dumping us back in the relegation mire with Nolan remarking in the media,
"We have to make sure those decisions don`t destroy us come the end of the season and I don`t believe they will."
"We were left frustrated by important calls that went against us - me being fouled when I was through at Everton and the handball by the Stoke defender which would`ve given us a penalty and a chance to level at 2-2.
"Hopefully a couple of decisions will go for us and we`ll have other teams complaining about losing to us because of them."
"Every game from now on in is massive."
It is, the games left to play are fast diminishing and every three points we can grasp will push those thoughts of slipping back into the danger zone further away from our thoughts.
