Allardyce: “The point feels like a win”

West Ham United v Nottingham Forest - npower ChampionshipSam Allardyce told 5 live Sport: “That’s more than a good point. We had to cope with going down to 10 men, which was a very difficult decision to stomach.

Our keeper was fouled, no doubt about that. And then Andy Carroll got injured again, and just had to stand up front as nuisance value.

“The defending was absolutely magnificent and that point feels like a win. We’ve given our travelling fans a lot of heart with that spirit and the way we defended.

“It’s the same injury as before with Carroll. He was declared fully fit the other day, but it wasn’t a dangerous challenge on him. It was a knock and it’s caused him the same injury again, which is obviously a concern for us. That’s a big blow, and we have a thin squad at the moment.”
