Faye targets top spot

Published Add your comment

Abdoulaye Faye says West Ham will go all out against Leicester City on Saturday in a bid to go top of the Npower Championship.

The Hammers currently lie in second place - three points and two goals worse off that league leaders Southampton - after an important away win against Brighton on Monday.

The triumph at the AMEX Stadium saw the east London outfit keep their sixth clean sheet of the season and, Faye knows, solid defensive performances lay the foundations for victory.

And now, says Faye, the Irons must focus on being tight against the managerless Foxes this weekend if they have any ambition of overtaking Southampton.

"We have confidence from a clean sheet on Monday and we want to do that again," said the experienced centre-back.

"Leicester are like us, they are strong and have experienced players. It will be a very hard game but we can defend well.

"Our defending has made us confident. We can look forward to the match and we want to win and maybe go top of the league."
