Behrami braced for Bolton test

BY foxsports • March 1, 2010

The Hammers have given themselves breathing space in the battle to beat the drop, opening up a three-point cushion on the drop zone. Back-to-back successes on home soil, over Birmingham and Hull City, have helped their cause considerably and results at Upton Park could go a long way to determining their fate. Next up in the capital are fellow strugglers Bolton on Saturday, with both sides desperate to take something from a crunch contest. "This is a game like the Hull one (a 3-0 win), against a team on the same level and they are a physical team," Behrami told West Ham's official website. "We need to win as we are at home and keep playing like we played against Birmingham (a 2-0 win) and Hull. "This is a very, very important game."
