West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce hopes to have striker Andy Carroll available by the end of the month.

Allardyce admits they've missed the on-loan Liverpool striker after victory over Norwich City.

He said: "The disappointing thing was the chances the front lads missed today, with balls just flashing across the box needed a tap in.

"We lost a goal in the 90th minute which made us edgy in the end when we should have been out of sight.

"We will continue to try to brush up on our finishing techniques with the lads and hope the next time round we are more clinical with our finishing."
