West Ham skipper Kevin Nolan is convinced the Hammers will soon start knocking in the goals and move quickly up the Premier League table.

The east London club have not tasted a league victory since the opening day of the season and currently rest 17th in the table.

They are yet to score an away goal and Nolan told the club's website: "We're creating chances and if we weren't creating chances we'd be really worried.

"It's just about them falling to us now. It is inches rather than anything else. If we just keep doing the right things, we know it's going to turn for us.

"In the last couple of weeks, refereeing decisions have hurt us and it is massive because it could have been another couple of points on the board.

"We've now got five points after six games and we're just above the relegation zone and it costs us massively."

One of the major concerns for the Hammers this season has been the injury to Mladen Petric who has only made two appearances as a second half substitute.

But Nolan believes the 32-year-old Croatian striker will soon be fully fit.

He added: "Mladen is getting up to full-speed with us and we've got Carlton Cole who is going to join in with us soon in training.

"Hopefully we'll start creating more and better chances and converting them."
