Hammers defender demands goals

Avram Grant’s side slipped to the foot of the Premier League table
with a 3-0 hammering at Chelsea on Saturday. The scoreline
flattered the champions and the Hammers had plenty of chances, the
most notable of which fell to Robbie Keane who blasted wide from
eight yards to waste a golden opportunity to make the score 1-1
with 17 minutes left. West Ham have only scored four times in their
current six-match winless streak and Gabbidon believes that must
improve in their remaining four games if they are to avoid the
drop. “It seems the same old story that we never take our chances,”
the central defender told West Ham TV. “We play well and create and
never get the result. So it is disappointing. We put in a lot of
hard work and we had chances to score and when they had their
chances, they took them. “For long parts of the game we did well
and 3-0 is really disappointing. “I can’t really take any pride as
a defender from my performance as we lost 3-0 so I am
disappointed.” The Welshman insists, however, that a repeat display
of the one at Stamford Bridge in the club’s remaining fixtures
against Manchester City, Blackburn, Wigan and Sunderland will
ensure their survival. “If we can show that kind of fight and
performance in all aspects of the game, we can stay up,” Gabbidon
said.
