No Fear Of Hammers says McInnes

No Fear Of Hammers says McInnes

Derek McInnes takes his side into battle against high flying West Ham tonight knowing that a win would help them no end in their quest to stay up.

But while being all to aware what West Ham can do if they are allowed to play their game, he says his side have no fear of the promotion chasing Londoners.

The Hammers will be looking to pick up all the points to keep up their challenge for second place in the league which carries with it automatic promotion.

But City are not thinking about that, they have their own battle against relegation to fight and McInnes says that his team are up for it.

McInnes said to the Bristol Evening Post: 'The game holds no fears for us. There is a real sense of anticipation about the fixture and there is a lot riding on it for both teams.

'For all of that, the hungriest team will be in my dressing room and we are really looking forward to this fixture.

'Regardless of whether we are playing a team at the top or bottom of the table, it is our performances that will determine where we finish.

'The boys are itching to get going and that is always a good indication for any manager.

When you get to this stage of the season, you get a lot of players shying away from those situations.

'But there is no fear in our squad and it is good to see a hunger and a desire among the players to influence things. The game cannot come quickly enough.'
