West Ham United goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen is determined to build on last week's solid start with another positive result against Newcastle United on Saturday.

The Hammers kept a clean sheet against Cardiff City and Jaaskelainen is sure another shut out would provide the key for another three point haul.

First of all, though, the Londoners will have to beware a backlash from the Geordies following their 4-0 loss to Manchester City on Monday.

"It was a great start," the Finn said. "When you play against promoted teams they normally carry on a high from last season, but we got the goal in the first half then second half made sure they didn't get any chances.

"We scored at crucial times to take the pressure off the defending. We used our chances to score and we need to keep on building what we were doing at the end of last season now.

"We got a great 1-0 win at Newcastle last year, but obviously it's a new year now. They're going to have a reaction from their defeat on Monday night and we have to keep patient, defend well and keep their crowd quiet,

"We have to be ready for their reaction and with the experience we have hopefully we can cope with that well."
