Sam: “This is almost a six pointer”


SamandHarrySam Allardyce sees Sunday’s game against Queens Park Rangers “almost as a six pointer.”

And the manager is adamant that seven points at this stage of the season simply isn’t enough.

Despite two or three good performances realistic Allardyce has made it clear the team must get more points on the board.

Speaking at his morning press conference and quoted on he said: “”We’re under pressure to get more points on the board.

We’ve played very, very well in five out of our six league games so far. The fact of the matter is seven points from those gamesĀ is simply not enough.

“We have to turn performances in to results. I think we should have gained a minimum of ten or eleven points by now. Unfortunately we only have seven.

At this early stage of the season you can jump places very quickly. The QPR game is almost a six pointer. We want to go into the international break with a positive result.”
