Cardiff midfielder Don Cowie claims the pressure is on West Ham ahead of the duo's npower Championship play-off semi-final showdown.

Scotland international Cowie bagged the winning goal at Crystal Palace on Saturday as the Bluebirds made sure of a top-six berth.

The first leg against the Hammers is at Cardiff City Stadium on Thursday before the Upton Park return four days later.

"They (West Ham) were very close to going up automatically," Cowie told BBC Sport. "They've got a great squad, they've spent a lot of money and I'm sure there will be a lot of pressure on them.

"There will be a lot of pressure on us within our dressing room. Now that we're in these play-offs we don't want to let it slip, we've got a great opportunity and we want to make the most of it.

"We're 10 games undefeated, first and foremost we've shown that we're hard to beat. We go into the game on Thursday very confident that we'll definitely give West Ham something to think about."
