Kevin Nolan urges the West Ham squad to stick together as they look to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

West Ham United captain Kevin Nolan has called on the squad to stick together as they look to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

The Hammers are currently one point adrift of safety following Saturday's 3-1 defeat at home to Newcastle United.

Despite the side's precarious predicament, Nolan wants his players to show plenty of fighting spirit between now and the end of the campaign.

"One thing we've got to do is stick together, keep that camaraderie going, keep the unity and togetherness," the midfielder told the club's official website.

"It's going to be a load of battles now and hopefully we'll enjoy it and win the war come the end of the season."

West Ham return to the pitch next Wednesday when they travel to Chelsea in the Premier League.
