David Moyes acknowledges the importance of this weekends must-win encounter with relegation rivals Nottingham Forest at the London Stadium.

West Ham head into the match in the bottom three, with nothing other than a victory over Steve Coopers promoted Forest side needed, with games to escape the drop fast running out.

Hammers boss Moyes, speaking to the press as reported by Football London, is fully aware that this is a hugely significant match for the club and his future as manager.

The Scot has seen pressure on him grow in recent days following the disappointing showing in the loss to Spurs at the weekend, however the boss was in a confident mood with positive injury updates to confirm.

“It is a really big game,” said the manager. “All of the games are big games. There’s not a lot left to play. They are getting bigger. We hope we can turn it around this week.

“The players are really committed, focussed on the job, looking forward to getting it underway.

“Kurt Zouma is back in training, Maxi Cornet is back in training, Lucas Paqueta is doing a little bit. I know what I’m going to do and I know we’re not going to tell you!”

The boss also stated and acknowledged that he and his players are now under huge pressure to start getting results to pull away from the drop zone.

“I think all managers are under pressure to a level,” added the boss. “I think you would be right if you said we are under pressure.”
