Sam Allardyce praises West Ham United following Norwich City win
12:20pm Wednesday 12th February 2014 in Sport
Sam Allardyce hailed West Ham's "outstanding" 2-0 victory over Norwich City last night but says the Hammers must continue to get more results to avoid getting sucked back into relegation trouble.
The Irons boss has now seen the club enjoy three consecutive Premier League wins for the first time since the end of the 2006/07 campaign after goals from James Collins and Mo Diame secured their latest win, turning around early-season form as they seek to remain in the top flight.
"It is just delightful," Allardyce said.
"An outstanding victory and a hard-earned win - 13 points from six games is a terrific run of form considering where we were and the trouble we were in.
"Even tenth might not be out of trouble - we have to continue and get more results.
"It's a great end to an important run of fixtures. If Norwich continue like that, they will have no problems. They were very good and gave us a good game."
Allardyce was again left singling out the heroics of goalkeeper Adrian, who kept his fourth clean sheet in succession to set his side up for another valuable three points.
"Our goalkeeper kept us in the game," Allardyce said.
"We scored late, when it is hard for anybody to come back into it - his reward was us winning it."
