Piquionne expects top-half finish for Hammers

West Ham striker Frederic Piquionne is confident of a top-ten finish this season despite the club currently sitting bottom of the table.

Avram Grant left Portsmouth to replace Gianfranco Zola at Upton Park this summer but, despite investment in the side, they have taken just one point from their opening five games.

Piquionne, one of the club's summer arrivals, believes that their slow start is simply down to the players having to gel together and fully expects them to turn things around.

"We need points but I'm sure that at the end of the season we will be in the top ten," he said. "We have the players to do that. Players have come in - we need time to play together, and we've played better in the last two games.

"We need to win at home on Saturday against Spurs, but the boss knows what to do. We had some tough times at Portsmouth, but everyone at West Ham knows we'll be okay."

Piquionne was on the scoresheet as the Hammers beat Sunderland in the Carling Cup on Tuesday.
