West Ham coach Pearce: Burnley clash about character

West Ham assistant manager Stuart Pearce says their clash with Burnley will be all about character.

The Irons head into a home game with the Clarets on the back of disappointing losses away to Liverpool and Swansea City.

“I think we've got to show some character, especially at home," Pearce told whufc.com.

“We're playing a well organised Burnley side, and a side who galvanised a victory last weekend. They've been playing particularly well. Their results have probably not turned around and shown us the whole picture. They are a good side with an outstanding manager.

“It's a game that we've got to look to get on the front foot in. We've got to look to play better than we did in the last two matches. One or two things we felt we didn't do particularly well, like conceding cheap goals, we're going to have to improve on that."
