West Ham boss Allardyce delighted with Joey O'Brien form

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is thrilled seeing Joey O'Brien impressing this season.

O'Brien caught the eye in victory over Fulham.

Allardyce told "I've got to give a great big boost to Joey O'Brien. He was one of the best young players I ever worked with when I was at Bolton. Injuries have dogged his career but I asked him to fill in at left-back against Fulham and he gave the kind of performance that I saw many years ago. I hope for him that he keeps that up.

"There were a lot of people who had forgotten about Joey in the game and playing like he did against Fulham will get people to sit up and take notice. I hope he continues that kind of form as the season progresses."
