The atmosphere at West Ham may be a little less tense now after beating Huddersfield but according to Andre Ayew, things will have to improve as they travel to play against West Brom on Saturday.
The Black Stars player helped the Hammers win on Monday with a goal and an assist after he came off the bench in the 64th minute to replace Javier Hernandez.
After the match, Ayew told West Ham’s website that the excitement of winning would have to be forgotten quickly so that they could prepare to face Tony Pulis’ team.
“We don’t have to get too excited. We’ve played at home and we won and now we are going to West Brom and it will be very difficult there, so we have to keep calm, work hard and be patient.
“Three points does not have to change everything. We know one week is different from another week so now we’re going to smile for maybe 48 hours, but we have to get back to work and prepare really well for Saturday’s game, because we want to get some points at West Brom.
“I think we feel relieved to have got the points. We’re not over-excited because we know we didn’t start the season well and we know we need to stay on the front foot and try to go and get something at West Brom.”
Ayew commended the efforts of his team mates in the victory against Huddersfield and said that they had to pitch in to stem the losing tide they were experience since the start of the season.
“We are happy for the manager, for the fans and for ourselves. We are players, we are a team and we are together. Times were tough, but we needed to stick together and work hard as a team to make it happen.”
Ayew will be hoping to increase his tally on Saturday away at West Brom in the Premier League.
