West Ham United Manager Sam Allardyce has said he can't understand why his side were booed off the field in their 2-1 victory over Hull, saying that the fans need to stay behind the team.

The Hammers put an end to a run of three straight defeats with Tuesday's victory over Steve Bruce's side but were rather fortunate to escape with three points after what was a particularly flat performance.

Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor was sent off for challenge of Mohamed Diame despite the midfielder appearing to handle the ball in the build-up. Noble stepped up to convert the penalty for the home side who secured the win thanks an own goal through James Chester, after Nikica Jelavic levelled the visitors.

Boos rang out around Upton Park following the final whistle much to the disbelief of manager Sam Allardyce, who could not understand such a negative response after a win that lifted the club to 11th in the Premier League table.
