Zola expects Irons upturn

West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola remains confident that his side will improve and move away from the wrong end of the Premier League table.

The Hammers have won just once in eight league games so far this term, but Zola refuses to be too downcast about the long-term prospects.

The Italian commented:"I know it hasn't been a good start and I question myself all the time.

"I look at the group the way they train and if they keep doing so with the same attitude they will not have a problem.

"They will come out of this situation brilliantly. That's my thought and I hope I'm right.

"This game is about psychology. It is important we get some points. We are not far away from where we want, but we need results.

"We need the comfort back of getting points. The table is very tight. If you end up winning two games you might find yourself in the middle of the table.

"Don't be surprised if things change quickly."
