Bobby: Hard Work Ahead

Bobby Zamora says it is going to take a lot of hard work to overcome Walsall at the weekend and get back to winning ways after the draw against Burnley on Tuesday.

While he acknowledges that expectancy is high, he warns against over-confidence from his fellow supporters, as it were, and explains:

"It is going to be another tough game; people are expecting us to win these things but Walsall will go out there to make things hard for us.

"But we will be going out there and giving 110% to come away with the three points.

"As players we know we should be well up there so it is disappointing when we don't win.

"I thought we would be winning every single game and it was two points lost on Tuesday."

Talking about the midweek 1-1 draw with Burnley, in which he earned a penalty that David Connolly slotted home for the equaliser, he says:

"It was definitely a frustrating evening and the lads were gutted.

"We created a good few opportunities and on another day we could have walked away with the three points - and possibly five goals.

"The first half an hour saw us create a lot of opportunities and really we should have put them away.

"It was one of those days, very frustrating; we should have gone on to win it.

"Obviously we are creating so it is not a bad thing but it is just disappointing not to have won on Tuesday.

"I thought we could carry on where we left off after half time but all credit to them, they made it hard for us.

"It was definitely a penalty on me; the referee said he didn't see it but the linesman was that side and he could see everything."

Bobby missed out on scoring his third West Ham goal when, following the penalty incident, he let David take the spot kick.

He admits:

"I don't know what came over me, I didn't even try and grab the ball!"
