Demba Ba maintains the belief that West Ham can avoid relegation to the npower Championship.

The Hammers currently occupy bottom spot in the Barclays Premier League, and defeat to Manchester City last Sunday was the east Londoners' fifth on the bounce.

However, West Ham did launch a spirited comeback after going two goals down inside 15 minutes at Eastlands, although they were unable to salvage a precious point.

The final fixtures represent a relatively more straightforward task for Avram Grant's side, as they take on three of the league's bottom seven sides.

Blackburn at Upton Park awaits next week, before the Hammers travel to Wigan the following Sunday, while Sunderland make the journey to the Boleyn for the final game of the season.

Grant feels that seven points will be enough to ensure survival, and Ba is backing the Hammers to beat the dreaded drop.

"We are going to keep our cool, put our heads down and keep on working," said the striker, who has scored five times since joining the club in January.


"In the last three games we have to give everything, not just tactically.

"It is not only about tactics but it is about fighting.

"Chelsea and Man City were big games but for us the most important are the three to come.

"Blackburn next is now the most important.

"We don’t feel that there is pressure at home. The fans have been great."
