He has called on his team mates to show the same mettle that they did after the break against Manchester City, and says:
"It could all have been over and we could have enjoyed playing some football in the last couple of games but it is still going to be tense over this week.
"It's still in our hands and we have to go about it in the same way as we did in the second half at Maine Road, and we'll be OK."
Looking back to the loss in the North West which means that the Hammers may still need a solitary point to breathe more easily, he says:
"It was a wierd game and there were an unbelievable number of chances with the keeper making some great saves as well.
"It's disappointing we didn't take something home - in the end we should have won it, never mind drawn it.
"We weren't happy at all with the first half but we were all over them in the second half and it's amazing how we never managed to get a goal having created so much.
"I think there was tension; at this stage of the season there is a lot at stake and we were a bit tense early on, but once we opened up it was clear that we had enough to win that game.
"We still need a point and we are fully aware of that; we are confident we are going to get it."
