West Ham boss Allardyce delighted with victory at West Brom

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce was delighted with victory at West Bromwich Albion.

James Tomkins and Kevin Nolan struck the goals for the Hammers.

"We're going to win the league now," he joked. "Our summer of hard work and recruitment is paying off now. Our strength in depth is standing us in good stead now because we're having to use our squad to the maximum.

"It wasn't a brilliant second half but it was resilient, coming from going behind and taking complete control of the game for the rest of the first half.

"I'm disappointed we didn't create more clear chances in the second half because I thought we were going to really push on. But to have seven efforts on target and five off by half time showed we were in dominant mood.

"Twenty four points at this stage of the season - that's one hell of a turnaround from this time last year when we were almost in the bottom three."
