West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has offered her support to manager Sam Allardyce after the team was booed off the pitch by sections of the club’s fans on Wednesday despite beating Hull City, Sky Sports has reported.

The Hammers struggled to impose themselves upon the 10-man Tigers, who has goalkeeper Allan McGregor sent off, but came out on top thanks to an own goal by James Chester. Despite the result, some supporters were frustrated by the team’s performance and responded with boos at the final whistle.

Allardyce, as well as captain Mark Noble, was quick to criticise the booing, and Brady has offered her backing to the 59-year-old. She said: "Sam had selected a team for a low-scoring match, knowing what to expect against Hull, and could not have predicted he needed instead a team to play against 10 men.

"His actions on the pitch were prudent and, at this stage of the season, correct. There is no way I can accept my team being booed. It undermines them when, in particular, they are giving everything they have to make up for the bad time the club endured before Christmas.

"Big Sam is so upset he complains that he has never heard a winning team booed. While this might not be strictly true, I doubt you would get the same at Fulham or Sunderland if they had won."
