Jermaine Jenas is determined to finish the season with a flourish.

We go into Saturday's big game against West Ham at the Lane on the back of a defeat against Blackburn last weekend - only our second loss in 10 in the Premier League.

That run - including four wins in five before Ewood Park - has lifted us up to 11th in the table and we were within three points of the Hammers in seventh before the late, late defeat against Blackburn.

That's why Saturday's derby is so important. "We've shown over the last few weeks how determined we are to have a positive end to the season," said JJ, in fine form in central midfield.

"We're focused on having a strong finish.

"I always believe in a winning mentality and the more games you win, the more it becomes a part of you.

"So the more games we can win between now and the end of the season, the better."
