West Ham boss Sam Allardyce will look to strengthen his squad during the January transfer window after his injury-hit side earned a goalless draw at West Brom.

Allardyce was without seven first-team players and only able to name six substitutes at the Hawthorns but he was full of praise for the way his side fought to claim a share of the spoils.

"You could probably say it's seven injuries because we haven't seen Alou Diarra since he joined us because he tore a thigh muscle," Allardyce said. "That, on top of the other six, made it very difficult for us to come here. That's why we only had six subs on the bench."
