Allardyce happy to end 'torturous' run
- From the section Football
Manager Sam Allardyce says West Ham got "what we deserved" in a 2-1 Premier League win over Norwich, ending a "torturous" run of four games without a win.
Mark Noble's third minute penalty came after Ryan Bennett was penalised for a foul on Winston Reid before Joey O'Brien's shot made it 2-0 inside the first half hour.
Allardyce admits his side finished the game "on the edge" after Russell Martin's 90th-minute strike set-up a tense finish.
The win sees West Ham up to 11th in the Premier League, one place above Norwich.
