Mark Noble says West Ham United will go all out to avenge the defeat they suffered at Hull City when the Tigers come to town on Wednesday evening.

The Hammers produced a decent display at the KC Stadium back in late September, only for a contentious penalty decision to cost them dear in a harsh 1-0 Barclays Premier League defeat.

Six months on and the two clubs sit in similar positions in mid-table, both eager to collect the handful of points needed to all but ensure their Barclays Premier League futures for another season at least.

"We feel we were on the end of an abysmal decision up there with the penalty that they got," said Noble, who spent a period on loan at Hull in early 2006. "We probably should have won that game, but that's life.

"We managed to get ourselves above them, although they've gone back in front of us at the weekend, and that's the way football goes. We want to take the three points."


With the fixture designated as a Kids for a Quid match, Noble encouraged as many families as possible to come down and enjoy the final home match of the season under the Boleyn Ground floodlights.

"It's a Wednesday night game and our midweek games are normally good fun under the lights, because the atmosphere really gets going. People finish work and they just want that release, so they come over to West Ham.

"The kids have been at school during the day and looking forward to getting over here, so hopefully we can get the points for them."

Should West Ham collect three points from their clash with the Tigers, Noble and company will move a step closer to safety and being able to enjoy the 2013/14 Player Awards.

The first-team squad, Board and coaching staff will all be present at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London's Park Lane on the evening of Tuesday 6 May.

There, Noble would love nothing better than to be crowned Hammer of the Year for a second time - meaning his performances between now and the season's end would have been of the highest calibre.

"Hopefully I can double-up. That's one of my aims, to win the Hammer of the Year again. I won it a couple of years ago and it would be nice to win it again, so hopefully the fans will vote for me!"
