Allardyce could sack Nolan as West Ham captain after second red card in four games

Kevin Nolan could be about to lose the captaincy of West Ham after the midfielder was given a second straight red card in four games, the Daily Mail has reported.

Nolan was dismissed against Fulham after kicking out at centre-back Fernando Amorebieta in an off-the-ball incident. The game was level at 1-1 at the time but the Hammers went on to lose 2-1, having taken the lead. The defeat leaves West Ham second bottom of the Premier League, three points short of safety and four points behind Fulham.


The 31-year-old is likely to be banned for four games, having sat out three after being sent off against Liverpool for a lunge on Jordan Henderson at Anfield in early December. In Nolan’s absence, West Ham failed to win a league game, drawing with Sunderland and losing to West Ham, with a League Cup win over Tottenham Hotspur their only success.


After the Fulham defeat, manager Sam Allardyce said: “I just don't quite understand where he's lost his cool and why it's happened. I know the centre-half fouled him, and I also know that (referee) Mark Clattenburg didn't give a free kick and he should have done,” the manager continued. “But it's still not an excuse for what Kevin did, and he ends up getting himself sent off.


Nolan is set to miss the FA Cup trip to Nottingham Forest, the first leg of West Ham’s League Cup semi-final tie with Manchester City, and league fixtures with Cardiff City and Newcastle, his and Allardyce’s former club.
