West Ham star eyes fourth away win at Millwall

Hammers midfielder Matty Taylor is convinced the way West Ham are playing away from home this season should give them all three points at the New Den on Saturday.

West Ham will travel to Millwall on Saturday confident of securing their fourth victory on the road this term.

The Hammers have already won at Doncaster Rovers, Watford and Nottingham Forest this season and midfielder Matt Taylor expects West Ham to get another victory at the New Den.

“I think we will cope well there,” he said after Saturday’s 4-3 win over Portsmouth at Upton Park.

“When we play away from home we seem to play with a bit more freedom so I would expect us to play well and if we do I would expect a positive result.”
