Hammer has no worries about Bolton hoodoo
West Ham’s record at the Reebok is disastrous, but West Ham midfielder Gary O’Neil is not fretting about it ahead of Saturday’s trip to face Bolton.
After Manchester United made it seven consecutive league wins against the Hammers on Saturday, a team with an equally impressive record take to the field against West Ham this weekend.
Bolton have also won the last seven encounters with the east Londoners, but midfielder Gary O’Neil is not worried by the previous efforts of the team to beat the Wanderers.
“I wasn’t aware of it and it doesn’t concern me,” said the former Middlesbrough player, who has slotted in on the right side of the West Ham midfield since his arrival in January.
“To me it doesn’t make any difference. It’s a game we can hopefully get something from and win, we fancy our chances.”
