Faye focused on Hammers home form

Published Add your comment

Abdoulaye Faye admitted he was disappointed to pick up just a solitary point on his full West Ham debut at Millwall last weekend, but remains positive and is looking forward to his first start at Upton Park next weekend.

The 33-year-old Senegalese centre-back, turned in a commanding performance to keep the Lions at bay at The Den, and is hoping he has done enough to put himself in contention for a starting berth against Peterborough United on Saturday.

"We were disappointed not to win the game [against Millwall] because we created a lot of chances and we should be winning this game," Faye told West Ham TV. "Sometimes you don't know what is going to happen and you create a lot of chances but you can't take them, so we have got to look forward to the next game.

"It's very important to win the game next week at home. We didn't win at home for six months [before beating Portsmouth] so we need to win two or three games on the spin and then everyone will have confidence for the future."


Faye relished the opportunity to make his first-team return for Sam Allardyce's Hammers, and outlined his plans not only for Saturday, but for the campaign as a whole.

"I will be looking to start [on Saturday]," he continued. "We have had a little bit of trouble at home because we have not concentrated through every game. You can't win every game two or three-nil.

"Sometimes you have to win one-nil and concentrate for the whole 90 minutes, but I have confidence we can do this and I think we'll be okay next weekend.

"I got my chance and I wanted to take it by helping the club to do well and to help us go up this season, [and] I have confidence we can do that."
