West Ham boss Sam Allardyce wants his players to show their character and defeat Southampton on Saturday. The Hammers have taken 10 points from the last four games, lifting them out of the bottom three and up to 11th.
Allardyce said: "We'll only know that at the end of the season, when we have achieved what we want to achieve and that is to finish as high up the table as we can.
"We are not out of the woods yet but we have made great strides, all of us, including the co-chairmen and vice-chairman Karren Brady for getting some new players in January.
"Everyone has played a part to alleviate the situation we were in and it's my job to make sure that pays off. At the moment it's going well, but Southampton are back in good form again so it will be a difficult game.
"But hopefully with the form we are in we will be big enough and strong enough to conquer them."
