Curbishley to fight on despite Hammers boo-boys

West Ham United boss Alan Curbishley vowed to win over doubting fans after Wednesday night's Carling Cup scare against Macclesfield at Upton Park.

Hammers fans were jeering Curbishley and sang 'you're getting sacked in the morning' just before Lee Bowyer grabbed an equaliser to force extra-time in the second-round clash against the minnows from League Two.

'What can I do about it apart from win games and keep going?' said Curbishley. 'I've had this now for a little while, I'll get on with it, I'm a big boy as I've said before.

'The disappointing thing is the players are the ones that have to go out and perform. The fans are brilliant when they are behind us and they have to realise the effect it has when they are not behind us. It can all change at the weekend.

'Football is a bit like this, you go through periods like this. It has happened to other managers and happened a bit last year.'

Macclesfield had not scored a league goal this season but took a fifth-minute lead through Gareth Evans and looked good value for a win before Bowyer struck.

Silkmen boss Keith Alexander felt the turning point was Izak Reid's sending off just before the end of normal time.

'You don't get anything when you come to these places,' he said. 'It was scandalous, typical of the referees, a ridiculous decision.

'We played very well, I'm delighted with the players but they didn't deserve the referee spoiling the game for them.

'People will think it is sour grapes but we didn't get a decision all night, and Izak Reid is now distraught.

'I told the referee but they don't listen any more, that is why they need half an hour after the game to get their story together. I'm not saying we would have won it but we would have had a better chance.'

In the extra 30 minutes, Carlton Cole, Zavon Hines then Kyel Reid netted to complete the win.
