Hammers ready for Lions' den

Next Story

Mark Noble is determined to continue West Ham's excellent form on the road this season by returning from Millwall with three points this weekend.

The Hammers take on their fiercest of local rivals on Saturday lunchtime; entering the the Den for the first time since 2004, and off the back of a first home win in six months.

Only once since the Second World War have West Ham taken the spoils on Millwall turf, with a solitary strike from Paul Ince winning a Division One encounter almost 23 years ago.

But the Irons are in formidable form on their travels under Sam Allardyce, having won each off their three away fixtures this season - scoring nine times and conceding just once.


Four wins from four, then, is the only outcome Allardyce and his players are contemplating prior to facing Millwall - something Mark Noble expects to achieve this weekend.

"With the players that we've got, we can go to any place and win," the midfielder told West Ham TV.

"There is no other aim. We aren't going anywhere thinking a point is good enough, because a point isn't good enough for us. We want to win every game and that's what we're hoping to do.

"When you win games, everyone is happy, training is happier and the ground is happier and everything is a little bit better.

"We need to keep on winning to get to the place where we want to be - the Premier League - and carry on our form there."
