Allardyce admits West Ham home form could cost them dear

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce admits too many home draws could cost the Hammers automatic promotion after a fifth consecutive failure to collect three points at Upton Park in the 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough. Allardyce said: "Eventually these draws will cost us. We were very, very patient and got into the lead, which was not easy because of the way the opposition sets up against us.

"It's frustrating because this is the best unbeaten run we've been on this season, but we're not getting the points that we need from these matches.

"We didn't have that little bit of quality or the ability to just add the killer instinct and then we go and concede one of the best goals this season, it was a real moment of quality."
