West Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass feels his side should be challenging much higher up the Premier League table. Felipe Anderson’s 74th-minute equaliser on Saturday salvaged the depleted Hammers a 1-1 draw at Huddersfield, who had taken an early lead through Alex Pritchard.
West Ham, still without half a dozen key players through injury, have won only once in six league games on the road under Manuel Pellegrini and are four points above the bottom three. “We want to be looking further forward and up the table, that’s where we need to be looking,” Snodgrass said.
“We need to win these games. No disrespect to Huddersfield, but we need to win them. “We got the goal we deserved over the 90 minutes, but we must push forward and believe we can go and win it.”
Huddersfield’s first-half display in particular belied their lowly league standing, but Snodgrass was not surprised by David Wagner’s side. “No, we knew what to expect. We worked hard during the week [to prepare for] a team which pressed really well,” he told reporters.
“They do that very well, but leave gaps in behind and we never exploited that enough. They’re very good from set-pieces and long throws, that’s what Huddersfield bring. “But we shouldn’t be shocked by that. That’s how they got their victory against Fulham, they’re a good side. “It’s up to us to regroup now.
A point on the road, we’ll take it and move forward.”
