West Ham boss Allardyce: We need 40 points to be safe

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce feels they need 40 points to be sure of Premier League safety.

The Hammers currently sit on 37.

Allardyce told Sky Sports: "We may (have to) sneak the points total up maybe one or two more, but I certainly think 40 now is definitely going to be good enough.

"Wigan have put a run together, Southampton have put a run together, Aston Villa have done it.

"I thought probably 38 but if you're going to be absolutely (sure), we're going to still go to the golden 40 aren't we."
