West Ham boss Allardyce frustrated by recent defeats
West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has said that he is struggling to find a reason behind his team’s recent run of defeats, the Guardian is reporting.
In what has been a largely difficult campaign for the East London club, Allardyce led West Ham to four consecutive victories in the month of February, lifting the club into the top half of the Premier League and earning himself the Manager of the Month award.
However, since then the Hammers have lost their last three Premier League games, against Everton, Stoke City and Manchester United, scoring just a solitary goal in the process. They now face Hull City on Wednesday evening lying 14th, six points above the bottom three.
Ahead of the game against the Tigers, who are two points above West Ham, Allardyce said: "We haven't achieved the results that the performances warranted. That is the disappointment for me because we knew the bad times we had in December and January were really down to the limited players we had available.
‘At the moment we have just not got that instinctive, killer edge on the front line, and because we are going all out for it we have left the back door open a couple of times and the opposition have taken full advantage of that."
