Baldock wants Posh performance

West Ham United striker Sam Baldock is looking to make sure Tuesday night's game against Peterborough is not another missed opportunity in the race for promotion.

Like the rest of the Hammers' squad, Baldock was at a loss to explain how the team dominated the game so heavily and yet still only come away with a point. The 23-year-old striker did not find the back of the net after coming on at half-time as the visitors passed up numerous goalscoring chances.

"I think it's a match that with the chances we had we probably should've won the game. I'm guilty of missing a couple myself and the team missed I think around ten in total. It's been a big problem for us of recent weeks," Baldock said.

"I won't let it affect me and nor will the other players I'm sure of that. If anything it will make us more determined to convert them next time."

Baldock entered the game on Saturday at half time along with Nicky Maynard and the duo combined well and aided the Hammers in clawing themselves back into the game.

"I enjoyed playing with Nicky. I think the team has to play differently when we are both up top. We both make different runs and our movement varies from coming deep to staying up top, which I think confused their defenders and opened up opportunities."

Looking ahead to Tuesday night's must win game against Peterborough, Baldock says the team are fully focused on bringing three points back to East London. The striker also recognised how much the fans' support will aid the team during the crucial upcoming games.

"We are going into Tuesday's game looking for three points. If the fans show up and support us like they did on Saturday they will help us to achieve that goal,"
Baldock said. "The spirit is still there within the camp we just need to convert the chances and turn one point into three."
