West Ham United PL2 entertain Brighton and Hove Albion on Monday (7pm kick-off) and boss Terry Westley is urging his side to maintain their momentum.
The Hammers have been impressive so far this year and currently lie second in Premier League 2 Division 2 with three wins, a draw and a defeat from their opening five fixtures.
Terry Westley is now asking his players to improve on their performance against Norwich and begin to build a run of results that could see them challenge for the league title come the end of the season.
“We were ten seconds away from making our start to the season even better against Wolves, when they equalised in the last minute,” said Westley.
“If you were to add those two lost points to our total, we’d probably be top if other results had gone our way.
“The players know they need to improve from the Norwich game and hopefully we can be at our very best against Brighton and get another win.”
The Hammers had to call on various qualities in their previous victory – one of those was a never-say-die attitude as they scored two late goals to sink Norwich at Carrow Road.
The result was assured once Marcus Browne slid home Noha Sylvestre’s pass but before that, Toni Martinez had given the Hammers the lead after scoring the rebound from his initial saved penalty.
The Spaniard has now scored seven goals in just six matches and has earned heaps of praise from coaches and fellow players at the Academy of Football.
“To have a striker like Toni in your team is very good. It’s very easy to play with him,” said midfielder Sylvestre.
“He can hold the ball up, he can score whenever he wants from lots of different angles. He’s a great player.”
The Hammers will hope Martinez can continue his relentless goalscoring form onto the home match with Brighton.
Admission is free for season ticket holders at the Chigwell Construction Stadium for the 7pm kick-off. Otherwise, it’s £5 for adults and £3 for children.
