Winston Reid suspended for West Ham United's trip to Stoke City

The on-loan Chelsea player limped off the pitch in Stoke's 1-0 loss to Burnley on Tuesday but Hughes said Zouma's injury was not likely to keep him out for long as feared earlier.

Stoke City manager, Mark Hughes has insisted he does not think about relegation, assuring the fans they will not go through a survival battle.

The 19th-placed London side beat champions Chelsea 1-0 last week before holding Arsenal to a 0-0 draw. "In recent years, it has not been as busy as people had made it out to be".

"I would like to add to the squad if we can do", he added.

Those positive results have moved West Ham onto 14 points, now behind Crystal Palace and West Brom only by goal difference and just a point away from Newcastle, who are 16th.

"I've never been relegated because I'm too busy trying to get in top 10s".

"We've still got to climb the table, so we've got to win an bad lot more games".

"We have organised really well to be good defensively and now we have to show we can put players in attacking positions, get them on the ball and take our chances when we create them".

"But overall, we still have a lot of games to go and we have got to win them".

Moyes is expecting a tough test against teams desperate for points but is keen for his side to play more attacking football. "His work-rate has been terrific and that's the first thing we want from him", the West Ham boss said. "But, we are going their buoyant, we are in good form, we feel good and we are going to try and go there and get a result".
