Winston Reid believes West Ham's Carling Cup clash with Oxford presents the perfect opportunity to get their season up and running.
The Hammers have endured a miserable start to the Premier League season, suffering a 3-0 defeat at Aston Villa on the opening day before going down 3-1 at home to Bolton.
Next on the agenda for Avram Grant's new-look side is a Boleyn Ground meeting with League Two outfit Oxford in the second round of the Carling Cup.
And defender Reid, who is one of Grant's summer recruits having impressed for New Zealand during the World Cup in South Africa, knows progress is imperative.
"We haven't had the best start to the season - two games and no points. It's most important that we win," said Reid, who moved to East London from Danish club FC Midtjylland.
"We have to go out to win all those cups because it's a chance to win a trophy."
