Sam Allardyce felt West Ham were deserving of the three points after watching his side edge to a narrow victory at Stoke City.

Jack Collison found the net on the stroke of half-time, firing past Asmir Begovic to put the visitors ahead at the Britannia Stadium

The Hammers did well to hold on for the win after Charlie Adam’s 22-yard shot hit the crossbar late on.

And Allardyce was thrilled to see his side pick up their first away win since 11 November as the east Londoners moved up to 12th place in the table.

“It is a fantastic win and we deserved victory,” Allardyce told BBC Sport.

“When I saw Charlie Adam’s late shot – because of the number of wonder goals that have gone in against us – I thought not again but we got a bit of luck. We got the victory we deserved.”
