West Ham boss Grant confident keeping job after FA Cup win

West Ham United boss Avram Grant remains confident keeping his job after their FA Cup win over Barnsley.

The Hammers could have had the game wrapped up after dominating the first half but they were denied by a string of top-class saves from Barnsley goalkeeper Luke Steele.

Jonathan Spector finally beat Steele but the Hammers went off the boil after the break and Barnsley hit the bar through Adam Hammill before Frederic Piquionne wrapped up the victory.

Grant said: "I don't think it is the same (as Liverpool). The expectation of Liverpool and the expectations here are not the same.

"The money that you have at Liverpool and the money I have is not the same.

"Are there definites in football? If there is such a thing, let me know. I work for the club for the present and future.

"I need to do my job. If I told you that your job was under threat, you wouldn't believe me and would speak to your boss.

"So I spoke with the boss and he did he not say anything like this. I don't want to keep talking about this.

"The pressure is for me to achieve what I think I can achieve at this club. I think we are getting there step by step."
