Noble looking for quick response

Mark Noble says the mentality of West Ham United's pre-season will not be affected by Saturday's defeat to Mainz.

The Hammers lost 4-1 to the German side, but won their previous four fixtures and Noble wants to bounce back when they face Hamburg on Tuesday.

West Ham play three games in their tour of Germany and Noble expects them to get stronger with every match they play.

He said: "It was not the best result in the world on Saturday but it is about getting fit in these games

"We came to Germany last year and had a similar turnout when we'd come on the back of four wins. We're finding our feet and some of the lads played 75 minutes, so it was a brilliant workout, exactly what we needed and now we're looking forward to the next one against Hamburg.

"I was hoping to play the full 90 to get the fitness under my belt, but they decided to give me 75 minutes and hopefully I'll play my part in the next couple of games.

"These German sides are good. They're technically very good and drilled really well. It was a good workout for the lads. No-one likes losing, even in pre-season, but the result won't come into it.

"Pre-season isn't just about getting fit, it's about getting together as a squad, getting the new signings involved and trying to enjoy it.

"We have done and now it's Hamburg. We want to get some more training under our belts, get ready for the next game and continue to get ready for the season."
