300 up for Noble

West Ham captain Mark Noble is poised to make his 300th Premier League appearance at the bet365 Stadium this weekend.

If selected, Noble will have reached the landmark 13 years after making his debut for the club in a 2nd round Carling Cup tie against Southend (which the Hammers won 2-0).

And new manager David Moyes, who has only worked with Noble for a matter of weeks, insisted that it was a "great achievement", given that the 30-year-old has spent his entire career at one club.

"He's played well for us," Moyes told the media at his Stoke pre-match presser this lunchtime. "He's captain and is making sure all the players are doing the right thing. It's a great achievement for him and I hope he continues to do it for us."

Meanwhile the man himself admitted that he would be delighted to record a positive result at Stoke tomorrow - the perfect way to cap his own personal achievement and a great week for West Ham.

"We needed results and the last two we got against two of the best teams in the league," Noble told whufc.com. "It’s been fantastic, but now we have to go and beat Stoke away. They’re in a similar position to us and we need to get three points there.

"This league, at the minute, is so tight. We need to pick up some more points, keep clean sheets and try to score some goals. It would top off a fantastic week."
