Allardyce fears for fixture pile-up

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has admitted that he fears the Premier League schedule could drag his side into a relegation battle, according to Sky Sports.

Due to several game rearrangements, Big Sam’s side have had any momentum built from their February win streak, quelled by disruption.


West Ham are currently in the top half of the table, but are just six points off of 18th placed Cardiff and the table could change very quickly.


"There's not a huge amount of difference between 10th and the bottom three so that can change very, very quickly,” said Allardyce.


"Falling games behind is not what you want to do. To make those games up and points up, where others have played games if they've picked the points up is a difficult task.


"I think we're going to fall another game behind in a few weeks' time when we were scheduled to play Arsenal, who are now in the semi-finals of the cup.


"It's going to be a pretty tricky schedule to manage, so we have two weeks off and then we're going to have to play three games in a week when the opposition won't have had to do that”


Despite the scheduling changes, the 59-year-old has said that his primary focus is on his side’s next match against Stoke on Saturday.


The Hammers boss is also wary of his opponent’s home form, having already seen them defeat Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United at the Brittania stadium this season.


"It's a real tough game for us because their home form has been very, very good, as it was under Tony Pulis," he said.


"I think they're fifth in the table in terms of home form, only losing two, so it shows you how tough the game is going to be for us.”
