Sam Allardyce has heaped praise on his West Ham United team for producing a 10th-place finish this season.

The Hammers secured tenth spot with a 4-2 victory at home over Reading on Sunday, courtesy of a Kevin Nolan hat-trick, prompting Allardyce to speak highly of the performance of his players throughout season 2012/13.

"It was a fantastic end of the season and fantastic entertainment value," Allardyce told Sky Sports.

"Just a great end to a very good season. It is great to see the players and fans appreciate what they have done for each other this season.

"We had a full house again, and it gives for a good summer for us all. We can look back on this season with great fondness in what we have done and achieved.

"We have a disciplined team with good ethics and good basics, and we have only lost four games at home, all to teams in the top seven."
