West Ham captain Kevin Nolan is targeting successive wins this week in order to put the club's bid for promotion to the Premier League back on track.

Kevin Nolan: Wants to boost promotion push

The Hammers have drawn their last five Championship games to slip down to third and four points adrift of second-placed Reading,

However, back-to-back victories over Peterborough United and Reading would lift West Ham back into the automatic slots and Nolan is staying confident.

"The lads remain upbeat and there's still all to play for," said the midfielder after Saturday's 2-2 draw at Burnley.

"We knew this would be a tough season and accept we should have won some of the games that have ended all-square.

"Of course we are disappointed we did not win this one. We started well but we got punished for it.

"The gaffer told us not to panic when we were 2-0 down. He made a few tactical changes and told us to tighten up.

"We need to change our luck but if we win our next two games against Peterborough on Tuesday and Reading at the weekend we could be in second place again by Saturday."
