Spector: Hammers must beat Blackburn
Published 23:00 16/12/10 By MirrorFootball
West Ham midfielder Jonathan Spector believes his side face one of their biggest games of the season against Blackburn tomorrow and wants to ease the pressure on under-fire manager Avram Grant.
Grant has reportedly been given three games to save his job and knows he needs to get a result at Ewood Park if he is to improve his chances of staying at the east London club.
West Ham are rooted to the foot of the Premier League and have taken just 12 points from 17 league games.
Spector is no stranger to relegation battles, having saved West Ham from the drop back in 2007 and hopes they can produce another miracle this season and retain their top flight status.
Spector said: “We have been hard at work this week and are focusing on the game against Blackburn on the weekend.
“It was a disappointing defeat against Manchester City. It is a really big game for us against Blackburn and it is one we are going to be looking to get three points from.”
