Winston Reid believes West Ham face a tough game at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday but believes the squad are ready for the test.

Reid has been one of West Ham’s top performers so far this season and his consistent performances under Sam Allardyce has seen him become of the most improved players at the club for many years.

And Kiwi defender admits he and his team mates will have to be at their best again away from the Boleyn Ground in order to come away from Swansea with a positive result.

He told “Every away game is tough but, to be fair, I think the boys have done well away from home this season and if we can keep those of performances up, we can take something away from Swansea.

“It will be tough, though, because they’re a good side. Swansea did will to win the Capital One Cup last season and qualify for Europe, so credit it to them.

“For us, we want to climb the league because our start hasn’t been the best. Hopefully we can kick on in the next couple of games.”

And Reid believes the players need to improve on their performance against Manchester City last week and need to find the form that saw that run-out 3-0 winners against Spurs at White Hart Lane earlier this month.

“At the end of the day Manchester City were a better side than we were and we didn’t play up to the same level as we did at Tottenham,” he added. “They were simply better than us.”
