- Alex Pike is confident things will turn around for West Ham United PL2
- The Hammers are winless in four matches
- They host Swansea City at the Chigwell Construction Stadium (7pm) on Monday
Alex Pike says everyone involved with West Ham United PL2 is working hard to improve their current form, which has seen them go winless in four matches.
The Hammers have endured a frustrating few weeks, losing consecutive league matches and going winless since the end of October, but Pike is confident a turnaround is on the horizon.
With just two games left before the Christmas break, the 19-year-old understands the need for maximum points in their next two fixtures.
“The spirit is alright. These things happen like the first team have found out this year, teams hit a bit of bad form. The two losses aren’t ideal but everyone has been working hard to rectify it,” he said.
“When you’ve shown that you can do it, it’s just a matter of getting back to that form. Working hard on the training pitch means you can get the bad things out of the way and hopefully this week we can bounce back and get a win.”
The Hammers entertain Premier League 2 leaders Swansea City on Monday evening (7pm kick-off) with the aim of closing the gap on the league’s pacesetters.

Swansea have won five in a row in the league and visit the Chigwell Construction Stadium in fine form, but Pike is confident the Hammers can resurrect their own form and achieve a positive result.
“Any game in this league, you never know what to expect because players can push onto the first team or they might have a cup game coming up,” he added.
“So you never know but we’ve got to expect a hard game as we always do. Hopefully we can live up to the challenge and do well.
“We’ve got a strong team at the moment and not too many injuries either. So hopefully we can get two wins in the next two games and go into Christmas and enjoy the break a little bit more. It’s always better to go into the break with wins.”
West Ham United PL2’s match with Swansea City kicks off at 7pm from Dagenham and Redbridge’s Chigwell Construction Stadium on Monday. Admission is free for season ticket holders – otherwise, it’s £5 for adults and £3 for children.
