David Moyes is not ready to let his West Ham United team's focus slip as they prepare to begin their Emirates FA Cup campaign at Gillingham on Sunday.
The Hammers recorded a fine 4-0 win over AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League on New Year's Day and Moyes wants to see more of that power when they take on the League One side.
The BT Sport cameras are on hand in Kent, so the manager is determined to make sure they do not witness a shock as he aims to plot a path deep in the competition.
"Bournemouth is only one game but it was certainly a really good start, and it was big credit to the players and the way they went about it," the manager said.
"Every day we’re trying to improve - progress is something we’re really trying to get and building on that first game.
"I’m fresh and ready to go. I’ve only had one game, I don’t feel tired, I feel ready and I’m hoping a lot of what the players get is from the manager as well.
"If I can give them energy and confidence, then hopefully those players will not show any sign of fatigue.
"Everybody wants to win the cup. My intention is to have everybody out there firing and try to build on the performance we had the other night."
We’ll try to win it with everything you’ve got - they’re doing the same and that’s why the cup over here is such an interesting competition
Moyes is well aware of the type of threat the Gills will pose, having grown up alongside their manager Steve Evans in their early years at Celtic.
"He went to play for Clyde when he left Celtic, and did really well," Moyes explained. "His manager was Craig Brown, and we used to play friendlies against them because it was only a mile between the two clubs.
"We were about 17, 18, 19 then and really we went our own ways in football and he’s done a really good job wherever he’s managed.
"He always seems to get the maximum out of his players, and that’s something which classes you as a good manager or a good coach.
"We’ll try to win it with everything you’ve got - they’re doing the same and that’s why the cup over here is such an interesting competition."
