AB­DOULAYE FAYE in­sists he can in­spire West Ham to pro­mo­tion af­ter mak­ing his first start for the club.

The 33-year-old cen­tre­back played against Mill­wall at the week­end and wants to keep his place for the clash against Peter­bor­ough on Satur­day.

Faye said: “I got my chance and I wanted to take it by help­ing the club to do well and to help us go up this sea­son. I have con­fi­dence we can do that.”

The Ham­mers ended a run of six months with­out a home win when they beat Portsmouth in their last game at Up­ton Park.

“It’s very im­por­tant to win the game next week at home,” said Faye.

“We didn’t win at home for six months, so we need to win two or three games on the spin and then ev­ery­one will have con­fi­dence for the fu­ture.

“I will be look­ing to start. We have had a lit­tle bit of trou­ble at home be­cause we have not con­cen­trated through ev­ery game.

“You can’t win ev­ery game two or three-nil. Some­times you have to win one-nil and con­cen­trate for the whole 90 min­utes.

“But I have con­fi­dence we can do this.”
