Mattie Doesn't Mind

Matthew Etherington says he has no preference about who West Ham face in the playoffs.

He knows that, as long as West Ham avoid defeat by the scoreline they inflicted upon Watford on Saturday, they are through to the next stage of the battle, and insists:

"It is still a big game on Saturday; I know they have to beat us by four goals but you never know - we have to be on our toes and make sure we do it properly.

"If we play our normal game we will be all right - we can't sit behind the ball.

"I am not bothered who we play after that; I suppose I would rather finish at home but again, I am not really bothered as we are playing well enough at the minute to beat anybody.

"It is massively important to finish third to keep out momentum going for the playoffs; we have had three wins in a row now and we are looking good.

"It was a really good win on Saturday and the Hammer of the Year award meant a lot to me - it was good to get it in front of the fans."
