Collison fired up for Boro

With just one solitary match against Middlesbrough to go, Jack Collison is eager to head into the summer on a high.

West Ham United have not lost their final league game of the season since 2001, and since their return to the Barclays Premier League they have recorded some impressive final-day results, including victories over Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Now Collison, who made his first start in more than two months against Everton last Saturday, is looking to ensure that trend continues at the Boleyn Ground on Sunday when the relegation-threatened visitors from the north-east visit.

"We want to end the season on a high, especially at Upton Park in front of our own fans as it's not nice to lose any game," the Wales midfielder said. "Unfortunately we're not going to make Europe but we're going to look to put in a good performance and end the season with a bit of a buzz."

Regardless of Sunday's results, the Hammer of the Year 2008/09 will be crowned before the players embark on a lap of appreciation around the Boleyn Ground pitch. Like most people, Collison believes this season will be a closely-run affair.

"Coley [Carlton Cole] and Herita [Ilunga] have both been brilliant. Whoever wins it, it will be a great achievement for them. If you look at the previous names that have won it in the past, they are all massive players. And coming from the fans as well, it's got to be one of the highest accolades you can get."

There are still a limited number of tickets available for Sunday's game. For more information, click here.
