West Ham United striker Carlton Cole insists they're good enough to beat the drop.

Cole says they can draw inspiration from last season's promoted clubs.

"You want to replicate the likes of Norwich and Swansea, who did well, and when you look at Queens Park Rangers surviving, all the newly promoted sides stayed up," Cole said.

"We are trying to do the same.

"But to get mid-table in our first season back and then look to progress from there is what you are looking at."
