Cardiff won't be easy, warns Fredericks

Ryan Fredericks believes that Cardiff will provide an exceptionally tough proposition for West Ham this weekend.

The Hammers travel to South Wales this weekend seeking to secure a second win within a week, following last weekend's 2-0 defeat of Newcastle United at the Olympic Stadium.

However the in-form Fredericks - who featured against The Bluebirds twice last season whilst still at Fulham - believes that Neil Warnock's side will prove a more difficult test than many are predicting.

"I played against Neil Warnock’s Cardiff last season and he’s a great manager," Fredericks told whufc.com.

"Credit for what he has done with so many teams, getting them promoted. It doesn’t matter what the style of play is, he wins games, which is the most important thing. And I know how hard it is to play against his teams.

"They put you under a lot of pressure and their players follow you all around the pitch, so we’ll definitely know we’ll have been in a game after the 90 minutes, but I’m confident we can get the three points."

Fredericks also maintained that West Ham are good enough to secure a seventh-place finish despite United currently sitting four points behind Wolves, with 39 points compared to the Midlanders' 43.

"There are a couple of teams above us that we want to catch and we’re more than good enough to go on a little run now by beating the teams below us and around us," he insisted.

"This is an important month as we have three of the so-called top six coming up away from home over the next couple of months, so we need to pick up some more points now."

Following the visit to Warnock's Cardiff on Saturday, West Ham host bottom club Huddersfield and then Everton following the international break. Those two home encounters will be followed by trips to Chelsea and Manchester United.
