Published Add your comment

Sam Allardyce admits West Ham will have to handle the pressure of being favourites again when they step out at Wembley for the npower Championship play-off final.

The Hammers, who will face either Birmingham or Blackpool on May 19, are 90 minutes from an immediate return to the Barclays Premier League after completing a 5-0 aggregate demolition of Cardiff.

"It's a big pressure for us and whoever we get we will probably be favourites again," said the Hammers boss.
