Allardyce hails side after Hammers win

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce paid tribute to his players after their 2-1 victory at QPR.

First-half goals from Matt Jarvis and Ricardo Vaz Te put the east London side in the driving seat and they were worthy winners despite QPR rallying after the break.

“We’ve achieved our first Premier League away win which is no mean feat for a newly promoted team. To come to QPR and dominate the game was great for me to see,” said Allardyce.

“Our resilience and defensive qualities came to the fore. We eventually saw the game out to win and I’m absolutely delighted.

“It’s a geat result for us and we have 11 points now, are seventh in the league, and it’s a really great start by the players who are going out and playing to their very best.”
