London - West Ham United manager David Moyes is feeling upbeat after the club's trip to Miami and believes it helped the players pull together for a final Premier League push. 

The Irons spent six days in Florida, where the squad took part in training sessions, team-building, and free time which allowed players to relax. 

Moyes believes the change of environment did the team a world of good and reinvigorated them for the tough job that lies ahead. 

The Hammers are down in 17th position in the Premier League standings and only two points above the relegation zone, following three consecutive defeats. 

“It was a really good week,” Moyes told the club's official website. 

“Obviously, we left on the disappointment of the result against Burnley, but I have to say it was the right time for us. We’ve come through a really long winter, so I just felt it was the right time to give the players some time away, with some good time together. We trained well in some good weather so, all in all, it went very well. 

“The good thing was that we pulled together and we’ve talked about it and how we’re going to come back stronger and be much better if we can be. 

“We trained hard, the players will tell you they worked hard on the days we had [sessions] and they had a bit of time in the afternoons, so some played golf and some went fishing and some sat at the pool so, all in all, it was good.”
