Bristol City winger Jamal Campbell-Ryce has set his sights on claiming the scalp of Championship title contenders West Ham on Tuesday night.
The Robins secured their first win in 12 games with a 2-1 success at Barnsley on Saturday and they travel to Upton Park looking to kick on.
The Hammers are flying high in second spot, and have tasted defeat just three times in the league so far this season, but Campbell-Ryce says that, despite their early season struggles, City remain confident of quickly climbing the table.
"West Ham obviously had big expectations having come down from the Premier League last year and they are hotly tipped to go straight back up, which is rightly so because they are a massive club," Campbell-Ryce told skysports.com.
"At the end of the day we are on a level playing field and going to a place like Upton Park and bringing some points back would give everyone a massive lift.
"Everyone knows how tight this league is and a couple of results can turn a relegation battle into a promotion push, so we just need to concentrate on getting out of the bottom three first and then use that as a platform to kick on."
