Boss bemoans lack of goals

Last Updated: Mon, 28 Oct 2013 09:06

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce was left to bemoan a lack of finishing as his side had to be content with a goalless draw at Swansea.

Not for the first time this season the Hammers dominated stages of the game but could not put their chances away and were left with just a point when they should really have taken all three.

Allardyce, who brought on Carlton Cole in the second half at Swansea for his second Hammers debut, was happy with the clean sheet but disappointed to take just one point.

He said: "We should have had it over and done with by half-time. We showed our classic counter-attacking football, but unfortunately our finishing qualities let us down.

He added: "We limited Swansea to one header from a set-piece. In the second half we didn't pass it as well as in the first. It's disappointing.

"It's our fifth clean sheet in nine matches but we have only nine points in total and that's not good enough."
