Allardyce thrilled with win, but not ref

Published Add your comment

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce was delighted by his side's performance at QPR on Monday night but rather less enamoured by referee Mark Clattenburg.

The Hammers secured their first away league win of the season thanks to a fine 2-1 victory in west London, with record signing Matt Jarvis netting after three minutes. Ricardo Vaz Te acrobatically doubled the visitors' advantage and, while substitute Adel Taarabt pulled one back in style, West Ham held on for a victory that propels them to seventh.

"We've achieved our first Barclays Premier League (away) win, which is no mean feat for a newly-promoted team," Allardyce said. "I think the outstanding qualities we showed today both in our ability to take the game to the opposition away from home and our ability to score goals was fantastic to see."
