Former Hammer Marlon Harewood know what it's like to represent West Ham United in the second tier.

The 43-year-old spent four years as a Hammer between 2003 and 2007 during which he made 142 appearances and was involved in one promotion push under the charge of Alan Pardew plus a desperate scramble to avoid the drop in 2007 - successfully, as it transpired.

And even though, as an honorary Hammer, the last scenario he wants to see the club involved in is another relegation scrap, Harewood firmly believes the club have the right man at the helm to engineer Premier League survival.

"After last year it's been hard for them," he told Sky Sports. "Other teams have realised what West Ham are about and they've done their due diligence about how they play. They've had to up their game.

"But I can see the gaffer pulling out the stops for them to be where they need to be.

"I'd like to see West Ham stick by David Moyes," he continued. "I'm not a person to call for managers to get sacked, as an ex player I know what it's like.

"It's hard, but I think he's the man for the job to pull them out [of the mire]. There's 11 more games to go.

"Hopefully they can make a decision at the end of the season, [but for now] just let him get on with the job for the last games. Hopefully he can pull them out of it, which I know he can."
