Allardyce Fumes Over Ref’s Decision

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce berated referee Andre Marriner’s failure to show Morgan Schneiderlin a red card in their 0-0 draw with Southampton.

Schneiderlin was not even penalised for his tackle on Mohamed Diame which infuriated Big Sam, who saw his side withstand immense pressure from Southampton to claim a point.

Allardyce was however pleased with the Hammer’s result, but could not hide his anger at Marriner's decision after the match.

"I can't for the life of me (understand) - Andre (Marriner) is such an experienced referee now, how he didn't see that,” he told Sky Sports.

"For me that was a disappointment. It's in the end kept them with 11 men on the field, which the law was supposed to be they should only have had 10 men, which would have given us a better chance of winning.

"But I'm happy with a point. I can't affect what the referees do, it's not my job."

After a run of three goalless Premier League fixtures, Big Sam is concerned at his side’s lack of goals and thinks West Ham were unfortunate to have their best chance fall to defender James Collins.

“We could have won it at the end when Ginge (James Collins) had his chance - that was the best chance of game," he told BBC Sport.

"It was a bit unlucky that it fell to our centre half, but from that far out he should hit the target.

"Overall, it was a decent performance. Defensively we showed how good we are but we can't hit the back of the net. That's my concern at the moment."
