West Ham United goalkeeper Darren Randolph insists his team are full of confidence again after a rough few months at the club.
The Hammers were hoping to enjoy the campaign in their new stadium but they endured a miserable opening.
Slaven Bilic’s men were dumped out of the Europa League before the group stages before losing five of their first six league games.
West Ham improved in October with two wins and a draw in the Premier League but they then went seven games without a win in the build-up to Christmas.
Bilic’s side have since recovered with six wins since December 14 and that form has pushed them up to 11th in the league table.
With 11 games remaining, Randolph insists the squad are now in good spirits as they try to secure a top-eight finish.
“I think everyone was hoping for an easier ride. We did play well in some games at the start of the season but didn’t do it for the whole game,” he told Sky Sports.
“Mistakes then creep in and you end up losing games you should be winning, and you end up dropping points.
We’ve managed to put that right now. We’ve had some good results at home and have managed to move up the table from where we were.
“It took probably the two results against Hull and Burnley at home, where we didn’t play well but got the two wins. From then on, that’s when we picked things up again and get that confidence back.”
