Faubert seeks home comfort

Julien Faubert has spoken of the high confidence in the camp with this weekend's return to the Boleyn Ground after road trips to Manchester and Middlesbrough.

The France midfielder is looking forward to a double-header of home games in quick succession - against Everton this Saturday and then Portsmouth in a week's time. If selected, those two matches will finally bring up 20 league games in claret and blue for the No20 who signed in summer 2007 - a reminder of the frustrating time he endured last season with injury and his steadfast determination to battle back.

Faubert had a good pre-season though before this campaign and is finally feeling at home in east London as a regular in the side. All that is needed now is an upturn in results to match the positive play like that seen in the 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough. "There has only been frustration that the results have not come in some matches lately, especially as we have been playing very well," he said.

"There is good spirit around the dressing room, we got a point last week and now this match is one we want to win very much and there is no reason why we can't be confident in doing this. I came here because I feel I can achieve a lot here. We play good football and everyone is looking for success, we have a good manager, staff and players to do this."
