West Ham’s Boa Morte demands three points from Newcastle match
Hammers midfielder desperate that the club keep their unbeaten run going.
WEST HAM midfielder Luis Boa Morte has promised fans that the Hammers will go all out for victory against Newcastle United this weekend.
The east Londoners, despite propping up the Premier League, are unbeaten in five matches.
West Ham take on an inconsistent Magpies side who have beaten Aston Villa 6-0, but lost at home to fellow Premier League new boys Blackpool.
“We are five matches unbeaten and we want to keep that run going for as long as possible,” Boa Morte said ahead of the crunch match at Upton Park.

Boa Morte rues the Hammers poor start to the campaign which saw them lose their opening four matches and the former Arsenal player is desperate to help the club make amends.
“No-one wants to have a bad start to the season because it leaves you with a big mountain to climb,” he said.
“We needed to put things right and that’s what we’re trying to do now - we’re five games unbeaten so we’re just going to try to keep going like that.
“I think everyone is playing well and has been putting in a shift for the club.
“We are all looking to achieve the same targets for the club.
“We want to finish as high as possible, that’s what we’re looking for.”
