West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is demanding his players start taking their chances in front of goal.

He has demanded his team be more ruthless in front of goal after they spurned some excellent chances to claim victory as they were held 0-0 at Newcastle last weekend.

"It's pleasing to have two league games without conceding, but our disappointment is that it's not six points," he said ahead of today's clash with Stoke City.

"It's our fault we didn't get the three points at Newcastle, it was there for the taking.

"In defensive terms though, two games in and Jussi Jaaskelainen hasn't had to make a save yet. Let's hope that he's in the same boat tomorrow.

"If he keeps a clean sheet, I think we'll win."
