Matt aims for positive finish

Matt Taylor has told West Ham TV he wants the Hammers to end the 2012/13 season the same way they began it.

The midfielder was part of the squad that took 14 points from their opening eight Barclays Premier League matches - a start that paved the way for a campaign that has seen West Ham United sit safely in mid-table throughout.

With seven games to go and Sam Allardyce's side just one win away from the magical 40-point mark, the No14 wants the squad to collect as many points as possible - starting with victory over Southampton at St Mary's on Saturday.

"Southampton is not a place where I've particularly excelled at personally in the past" Taylor admitted. "I gave a penalty away there in the last couple of minutes in an FA Cup tie about six or seven years ago [for Portsmouth] and got injured there last season so hopefully it'll be a better game for all of us this time!

"We want to pick up points but they are in a great vein of form themselves. We're level on points going into the game so it's going to be an exceptional encounter and, if we take last Sunday's performance at Liverpool into Saturday's game, then we can get a positive result."
