Davenport aware of Sheffield United test

Calum Davenport knows exactly what to expect from a trip to Bramall Lane, having made his first Hammers debut there in 2004.

"That was in the Championship and we were both going for promotion at the time," he said. "Now we're both fighting against relegation. It's a difficult place to go, their home form's good. Hopefully we can go there and get the right result.

"I think they're going to come at us early on. They're at home and the crowd's going to be behind them from the start. We have to try and weather the first twenty minutes and then play our stuff. We've got quality in our side and hopefully that'll show tomorrow and we can get the right result as we did last time we played there."

With the Hammers on a three-match winning run, Calum insisted there will be no complacency ahead of tomorrow's game.

"After the last three wins, I think the manager will stress that we've done our ground work but the big one's tomorrow," he said. "We've got nine points out of the last three games but I think it will all come down to this week. Whether we come out above them on Monday will be a big advantage for us, so it's a massive weekend.

"We took a little bit of pressure off ourselves and the lads are bubbling, everything's lively and everyone's enjoying training. On paper everything looks right for us to get a good result."

And after five weeks on the sidelines with an injured foot, Calum is ready to fight for his place in the team.

"It's been frustrating, but it's not broken just bad bruising to the bone," he said. "I've been back training for a couple of days now and I'm feeling alright. When you've been out for a while you want to get back and run around. It's good to be back in with the lads.

"All credit to the lads; I can't see the manager changing the side. The lads have won the last few games and I wouldn't expect to be straight back in the team. All I can do is train well and hopefully give the manager something to think about for the last six games."
