Mixed emotions for Allardyce

Published Add your comment

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce was relieved that his side snatched a point against Sunderland through Kevin Nolan's injury-time equaliser, but his overriding emotion was one of frustration.

Steven Fletcher's fourth goal in three matches had put Sunderland ahead and West Ham dominated the game without reward until Nolan beat goalkeeper Simon Mignolet with a shot on the turn in the dying seconds.

"Didn't we deserve more than that on the balance of play? I thought from the start to finish we were the dominant side and created far more chances," Allardyce said.
