A BIG WEEK FOR BIG SAM.

Byline: DECLAN TAYLOR

SAM ALLARDYCE has told his side to stick together ahead of West Ham's "season-defining" week . The Hammers have won just two games out of 12 this season and sit three points off the bottom of the Premier League.

Today they face Fulham, who are also on 10 points, at Upton Park, before a midweek trip to secondbottom Crystal Palace. Big Sam (below) said: "I think this is a season-defining week with the games and who we're playing. "By the time we come round to a week tomorrow, we will either be sat in the upper reaches of the bottom end of the table or we'll still be around where we are now.

"The most important thing is to win your games against your near rivals.

Yes, it's a difficult period, but players show their true team spirit in situations like this.

"They show their true togetherness and that's what they've got to do, they've got to stick together.

"They can't fragment and think it's all about them. It's not just about them, it's about the whole team and everything that goes with it to achieve the right results."
