Tony Cottee: “Don’t waste the Spurs win West Ham”

Hammers legend urges West ham to build on win over Tottenham

West Ham legend Tony Cottee has urged the Hammers not to waste last weeks win against Tottenham by being complacent against Fulham on Saturday.

The East End club are still in the bottom three despite the win and the former striker is desperate to see his former side use the win as a platform for the remainder of the season.

“Everybody will be full of confidence following the win over Tottenham and desperate to get out onto the pitch again it is vital we don’t waste that performance by dropping points this Saturday,” he said.

“The Cottagers will be without three key men in Bobby Zamora, Andy Johnson and Moussa Dembele and I expect they will play Clint Dempsey on his own up front.

“They like to pack the midfield and although they have talented players like Danny Murphy in the middle of the park, I would expect us to win the game. Unless there are injuries I see no reason to change a winning team.”
