West Ham United failed to win against Charlton Athletic in a pre-season friendly at The Valley earlier today.
The Hammers were held to a goalless draw by the Addicks at The Valley in a pre-season friendly earlier today.
The scoreline left much to be desired, but Dicks does not seem to be too disappointed with the final result.
The 46-year-old Englishman appears to be satisfied with the performance produced by the players.
@JULIAN3DICKS what did you think of the Charlton game mate?— JODY MALLEY (@JODYALLEYCAT) July 25, 2015

@JULIAN3DICKS Is our lack of goals a concern or are you just thinking it's only preseason and it will come?— James Wallis (@wallis_james) July 25, 2015
Even in pre season you wanna score goals, it's when you don't create chances it becomes a problem https://t.co/vE2yUc4zDR— Julian Dicks (@JULIAN3DICKS) July 25, 2015
Pre-season is about stepping up fitness levels and getting in the groove of things; results are not of huge concern.
While the West Ham fans will have wanted Slaven Bilic’s side to win today, they should not be fussed about the final result.
As long as Bilic sees improvement in his players and keeps on getting his message across to the team, it should be considered as something positive.
