Hammers hope for winning return

Joey O'Brien wants West Ham to continue their impressive away form at Reading on Saturday and bounce back from the defeat against Burnley.

West Ham have been brilliant on the road this season winning seven Championship matches out of ten, including the last four in a row.

The full-back said: "We're going to Reading definitely trying to win, but it'll be a tough game because they have some good players going forward.

"Hopefully we can play like we did at Middlesbrough and take all three points."

The former Bolton man was disappointed with the manner of the goals that the Hammers conceded on Saturday, as both came from set-pieces, and thought they deserved to take something from the game.

"I think we should have won the game against Burnley or, as a minimum come back with a point. Maybe in trying to go for the win we got a bit anxious and let them in the back door."

The result was twice as hard to take because Southampton also lost and West Ham could have been top of the league had they of come away with all three points.

O'Brien was not too down hearted though, saying: "The lads were disappointed because the news was broken to us after the game, but they haven't made any ground on us, so we have a chance to catch up with them next week."
