Jack Collison is determined to fight for his place in the West Ham United team in the hope of repeating his scoring feat against Hull City.
The midfielder struck the second goal of a thrilling 3-3 draw back on 21 November but the Hammers saw a two-goal advantage turn into a one-goal deficit by half-time before a second-half equaliser. Collison said the aim was to go one better this weekend at the Boleyn Ground and claim a second successive victory.
"I scored at Hull after we started that game really well but unfortunately let them back in it. We are looking for a bit of revenge on Saturday and to take the three points. They are coming to our place this time and to win would be massive."
The 21-year-old said home support would be telling and issued a rallying cry to the fans to be in full voice again. "Their support is what we need. It is a huge game. It is very tight down the bottom and it will be great if they can be our 12th man.
"The fans haven't got on our back at all this season - even at times when we haven't played too well, they have been superb Hopefully we can pay them back."
Collison did not figure in last week's 2-0 home success against Birmingham City but you will not hear him complaining after that morale-boosting triumph. "Everyone is together. It has given the whole place a massive lift.
"It is hard not playing but the boys won and I was very happy for them. The manager obviously made the right decision because we won but I am just going to try and force my way back into the team. I'll have to drop in a little word about my goal last time!"
