Allardyce disappointed by booing

Sam Allardyce winning the Manager of the Month Award for February is one of two plaudits recently earned by West Ham.
Sam Allardyce has been West Ham manager since 2011.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has hit out at the club's fans for booing their own team during the 2-1 victory over Hull at Upton Park on Wednesday night.

Allardyce's side arrested a slump of three consecutive defeats to move nine points clear of the relegation zone but West Ham's performance was still jeered by the home support.

Despite Hull being down to 10 men after 26 minutes, West Ham were forced to hold on for their first Premier League victory since Feb. 22.

"I started at 16, got into the first team at 18 and I'm 59 now and I have never been in place where we have won and got booed," Allardyce said to the BBC.

"At half-time the players were talking more about fans booing them than the game.

"Fans affect players. We don't need them on the players' backs when we are coming off three defeats. They have to stay and help them win."

Visiting goalkeeper Allan McGregor was sent off for a challenge on Mohamed Diame in the box with Mark Noble scoring the resultant penalty.

However, Nikica Jelavic brought Hull level just after the break, deflecting in Tom Huddlestone's free kick, only for a James Chester own goal to give West Ham the three points.

"They are frustrated. I get frustrated. I want the players to play better," admitted Allardyce.

"People are organised, wait for an opportunity to suck you in and expose you, even with 10 men. It's not an easy task and we should all be very grateful."
