Upson: West Ham need to relax at home

West Ham defender Matthew Upson believes they need to relax a little at home to improve their Upton Park results.

Upson said: "We haven't played consistently well enough for 90 minutes at home all season.

"We need to relax a bit more - we've been talking about this since the first three or four games - and play with kind of freedom that we play with away from home.

"We play quite open, attacking football. We're not afraid to get it down and pass it. At home, maybe we clam up a little bit, especially after we go a goal up.

"The only thing I can think of is that it's a more mental and psychological thing than anything else."
