Allardyce urges West Ham to go for three points

Sam Allardyce has urged West Ham to turn draws into wins as they look to boost their hopes of automatic promotion from the Championship. The Hammers face Peterborough tonight unbeaten in 10 games, but having won only three of those and slipped to third place, four points behind this Saturday's opponents Reading.

"We've had seven draws and three victories out of 10 but it should be the other way round," he told the club website.

"It's costing us dear but we're still in with a shout with eight massive games to go so let's turn the draws back into victories.

"It's a big game as it's our game in hand and then after that it's Reading, so if we really want to get automatic promotion we've got to beat Peterborough. If we beat Reading (as well) we know we go back to second spot.

"It's sad we can't go there on the crest of a wave after getting the three points we deserved (against Burnley on Saturday). We should have won 4-2 or 5-2 or 6-3."
