Allardyce has been named Manager of the Month for February.
"I think Sam deserves it. I think he does. I think he won four consecutive matches in February. When you win every match in the month, normally you have to win the award.
"I didn't in some months where I won every match, but that's me. Sam deserves it because he works with West Ham like a shotgun, taking the team from a dangerous position. He deserves it clearly."
