West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has thanked the club’s owners for their public support but admits he has to get his team winning games again, the Guardian has reported, as the spectre of a Premier League relegation battle looms large.

The Hammers are second bottom of the Premier League table and were dumped out of the FA Cup on Sunday by Championship side Nottingham Forest. Allardyce named an inexperienced side in an effort to contend with the injuries plaguing his squad, but concedes results have to change.

David Gold and David Sullivan, the West Ham owners, issued a statement offering their support to Allardyce but the former Bolton, Blackburn and Newcastle boss says he is under no illusions as to the reality of the situation. “In the end, we all know what happens if you don't get results as a manager,” Allardyce said. “But I'm here. I'm pushing the club forward with the help of everybody here at the club, from top to bottom.

We've had a very good success in a short period of time,” Allardyce continued. “We're having a very poor experience at the moment. [Everything] depends on what results I get from now until … well, over the next few weeks or games.

I'm realistic to know I have to get results, particularly quickly from my point of view, as a manager,” he added.

Allardyce was speaking ahead of West Ham’s Capital One Cup semi-final first-leg trip to Manchester City. The sides met in October at Upton Park, with City running out 3-1 winners through goals from David Silva and a Sergio Aguero brace. Ricardo Vaz Te scored for the home side.
