Parker keeps on going

Scott Parker has spoken of the confidence flowing through the West Ham United ranks after another man of the match display.

The peerless midfielder was singled out by Sky Sports for his box-to-box brilliance in the 1-1 draw against Everton that saw him tireless from start to finish. Parker summed up the spirit in the camp by saying the team were actually disappointed to only get a point against a team that had beaten high-fliers Manchester City in their previous outing.

He said: "Obviously after going one-nil up, we are a little bit disappointed. We needed to win today. But in saying that, we have come off a good result against Fulham and we have been unbeaten. We have not lost the game."

After 1-1 draws against Blackburn Rovers and Everton sandwiched the terrific 3-1 away win at Fulham, Parker said the team would be on a high for the visit of Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

"We have got an important game against Wolves at the weekend and this is something to build on. There were definitely some positives in the game and only a little bit of a lack of concentration at the end of the first half saw them score.

"We have confidence definitely and it has been there all year although there are times when it gets a bit edgy and it is bound to when you are bottom of the league. You aren't going to be flowing all the time but every one of us is confident that we can get ourselves out of this."
