Should City get a result at West Ham then there follows three consecutive home games. Firstly v Coventry next Tuesday then after an 11 day gap we have Norwich and Reading within 4 days of each other. If City are to be a play off contender then we have continue winning.
"We have to win three or four matches on the trot," Lennie Lawrence told the Echo. "If we beat West Ham it would be a massive step - and that's the challenge.
"We have 14 matches left and it's likely we must win nine of those to make the play-offs. We haven't won three or four games in a row all season - and now the challenge is to change that.
"We remain among six or seven teams chasing the final play-off spot and a win at West Ham would be a major boost to our hopes."
