After West Ham earned a narrow win against Bristol City in the FA Cup fourth round, manager Sam Allardyce admitted his men struggled to contain the League One side, reports BBC
The Londoners found themselves under the cosh for the first-half, but City just couldn’t make their dominance count, with the final ball lacking, or finishing being below par. It came back to haunt them late on in the second-half too, with United scoring with minutes of normal time remaining to seal victory and their place in the FA Cup fifth round.
“I knew it was going to be tough and it was exactly that. Bristol City showed why they are where they are in their league. We found it difficult to get our passing game going but thankfully Andy’s cross and Sakho’s header was all we needed to get a very important win. This is a pretty big result for us,” said the Hammers boss.
