Nolan wants Coventry favour
West Ham captain Kevin Nolan hopes Coventry can do the side a favour by beating Southampton on Saturday.
The Hammers need to win their home game against Hull and Coventry to pick up at least a point at St Mary's to have any chance of automatic promotion from the Championship.
If Southampton draw, Sam Allardyce's side would must beat the Tigers by more than three goals depending on how many Nigel Adkins' side score against the Sky Blues.
Nolan knows it is a big ask but is hopeful of a Coventry upset.
He told BBC London 94.9: "We are asking Coventry to do us a massive favour. We're really hoping Coventry go there and give them a good game."
The West Ham skipper also admitted it may take a slip-up from Southampton if the east London club are to pip them to second place on the final day of the season.
"It's going to be tough on Southampton," he added.
"Hopefully when they put that shirt on on Saturday it'll be a little bit heavier as there are expectations on them to win the game."
