George McCartney insists West Ham players are still confident despite slipping into the Premier League drop zone.

A dismal run of six league games without a win has left Sam Allardyce's side in a relegation dogfight, but McCartney believes morale remains high in the squad.

"You look over the last few weeks at the teams that have sacked their managers," said the defender. "The players haven't been happy with whatever way they were playing but our dressing room is great, confidence is high, the spirit is high.

"We're all in it together and we're still doing all the right things on the training ground.

"It is after Christmas now and when you find yourselves in the bottom three, everyone maybe gets a little bit edgy and games you feel you should be winning you're just not getting across the line.

"It eventually catches up on you. The dressing room's great and we're just trying to move up the table again and get ourselves out of this situation."
