Allardyce remains defiant as West Ham fans protest

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce says he is determined to carry on at Upton Park despite unrest among fans. The Hammers have lost their last four Premier League games and are not yet mathematically safe from relegation. Some fans vented their displeasure at Allardyce during last Saturday's 1-0 defeat by West Bromwich Albion.

"We're trying to progress the club, so I'm delivering what the owners want. We're close to being in the Premier League for a third season," he says.

Only the views of Hammers owners David Sullivan and David Gold, or vice-chairman Karren Brady are what concerns Allardyce.

"I wouldn't see it any other way until they ring me and tell me otherwise," he said.

"Without results you get criticised. Hostility in terms of disapproval of what you're doing or not doing is part of the job."
