West Ham boss Allardyce rounds on his critics

West Ham moved to within a point of the automatic Championship promotion places with a 2-0 victory over Peterborough. But the win was marred by negative chants about boss Sam Allardyce's perceived direct style of play which rung out from the visiting supporters.

The Hammers boss said: "The perception of some people is deluded as the facts about my teams clearly speak for themselves.

"It is a tag that has followed me around for a long time and one I'm never going to be able to shift. I can't do anything about that but I can win football matches.

"We have had to overcome home teams playing with a lot of energy in front of full houses throughout this season. We did it again here and once we got the goals, we out-passed and outplayed Peterborough.

"It was a good performance, although not as good as at Burnley on Saturday. We only drew that game though so everyone was miserable whereas they will be happy."
