West Ham star Sears: Wolves game is massive for Hammers
Upton Park clash is a ‘six-pointer’
WEST HAM’S Freddie Sears has described Saturday’s clash with Wolves as a ‘six-pointer’.
The two relegation rivals clash at Upton park on New Year’s Day and the Academy product knows how important it will be for their survival hopes if they can collect three points.
“It’s a massive game. The game against Wolves will be a great game to win. If we do, it will put a bit of daylight between them and us and try and get higher up the table. It’s definitely a six pointer,” he said.
The Hammers approach the match in decent form and are unbeaten over Christmas, a factor which Sears believes will definitely play in their favour come Saturday.

Sears is desperate to start his third game on the bounce since returning from a loan spell at Scunthorpe.
The pacy forward has played on the right-hand side of midfield in both matches and is yet to score since his debut winner against Blackburn in 2008.
“It does not really worry me. I’d love to score i’d be a liar if I said otherwise,” he said. “It’s nothing I go out and think about I want to go out for the team I play for and get the three points. If we win 3-0 and I don’t score I am happy, if I score i’ll be even happier.”
