'Only three points will do'
MICHEL Vorm insists nothing less than three points will do when Swansea City take on West Ham tomorrow (4).
Michael Laudrup's side are looking to record back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time this season.
They beat Sunderland 4-0 a week ago before being held to a 1-1 Europa League draw by Kuban Krasnodar on Thursday.
Now Swansea go in search of the victory that could push them into the top half of the table ahead of a South Wales derby meeting with Cardiff a week later.
And Vorm has stressed that only a win will be satisfactory.
"There's a very positive vibe after beating Sunderland 4-0," said the keeper.
"Everyone knew we hadn't won at home for a while in the Premier League.
"West Ham are not a top, top team but they are a strong side. They are a team we need to win at home against, these are the type of games we need to win at home.
"There's no option other than winning."
Swansea won a top-flight match at the Liberty for the first time since March when they dispatched the Black Cats.
An even first half ended goalless before Swansea took control in the second period.
Phil Bardsley's own goal got the ball rolling before Jonathan de Guzman, Wilfried Bony and Chico Flores also netted.
"You can see Sunderland are struggling but there are no easy games and sometimes you have to be patient," said Vorm.
"Sometimes that's hard, especially as a defence if you see that we miss some chances.
"It happened against Southampton and then you end up conceding and losing.
"Sunderland didn't create that much but neither did we until we scored the first goal. When we got that goal we were more confident to press and play."
It was a clash of cultures when Swansea met West Ham at Upton Park last February.
Their pretty passing style was at odds with Sam Allardyce's direct side, who were spearheaded by Andy Carroll.
The England striker tormented Swansea's defence and eventually scored the decisive goal, powering a header past Vorm.
Carroll made his loan move to East London permanent in the summer as West Ham agreed a £15 million transfer fee with Liverpool.
But he will not feature tomorrow because of a troublesome heel injury.
The former Newcastle forward is yet to make an appearance this term and has spent time at a specialist treatment centre in Belgium.
"It's about the points at the end, not how many passes you make in the game," added Vorm.
"Obviously that's our strength and we will keep on doing that but it's about how you keep on making chances and scoring goals.
"We did that against Sunderland but West Ham is going to be a totally different game.
"Physically Carroll is very strong but he is also a good striker and a good goalscorer.
"It's probably good for us that he is not there.
"If we get the three points we have 13 and we can relax in a different way before the derby.
"If I'm honest the fans are talking to me about the derby already, but I'm just thinking about Sunday."
