West Ham United assistant manager Neil McDonald is looking forward to returning to his old stamping ground in Everton this weekend.

McDonald played 90 league games for the Toffees between 1988-91 and now the Hammers will travel to Goodison Park on the back of the four wins out of four.

While confidence is high, McDonald says nobody is getting carried away and there is still work to do to pull away from the relegation zone.

He said; "We are in a really good habit at the minute, the team spirit is probably the highest it has been since coming to the Club and the boys are trusting each other, working hard for each other, and even when we go behind now, we seem to respond in the right way.

"The response was fantastic against Southampton to score two goals in a few minutes, one from a corner ourselves and one from a great ball from Kevin Nolan to Matt Jarvis. That put us on the front foot.

"It was a difficult game, all the way through Southampton played really well but at the end of the day, you have to create the chances and score from them to win the game. We then took our chance again in the second half, carried on and it was a terrific finish from Kevin, that then killed them off.

"We are looking to reach those magic points of safety, there are still a number of tough games to play and Everton will be difficult.

"They are an excellent side so we have to be on our guard, but we will be focused and we will be ready."
