West Ham new boy Pogatetz calls for calm

Emanuel Pogatetz has urged West Ham United not to panic as they look to stave off a relegation battle.

The Hammers sit seven points above the drop zone following the weekend's loss to Aston Villa but Austrian defender Pogatetz, who arrived on loan from Wolfsburg in January, feels the East Londoners are sitting comfortably and need to relax.

"We shouldn't panic. We are in a good position," said Pogatetz.

"Obviously we know we have hard games coming up, but we are up to the task.

"Our performance was alright at Villa and if we can push on from that, we can put many more points on the board and achieve everything we want by the end of the season."
