Not A Happy Birthday For Hammers Boss

Avram Grant put off his birthday celebrations after watching Birmingham City beat his team 1-0 at Upton Park to leave the hammers bottom of the league.

Grants side went into this one after a moral boosting mid week win at Blackpool but they could not carry on the momentum.

Nikola Zigic's second-half header was enough to see the home side off and put Grant's position as manager back under the spotlight.

'I am not so happy, my birthday is cancelled,' Grant said.

'How can I celebrate? We didn't score and didn't win. It is not happy birthday but it is not me that is important, it is the team.

'We take a few steps forward and one back and we need to learn from this. We deserve to stay up but we need to do it. We cannot lose games like this.

'The disappointing thing is that we lost to a team near us and it is a game of six points.

'Until now we have won these games. It will be a battle until the end but we need to take points because we have the quality to do that.'
