ALLARDYCE TARGETS RETURN

Sam Allardyce has said that West Ham will be targeting to return to the Premier league. "As difficult a task as that is going to be, it can be achieved," he said.

"With the club the size of West Ham it needs to be achieved as soon as possible because the long term goal is the Olympic stadium."

The former Bolton and Blackburn boss replaced Avram Grant after the Hammers' relegation to the Championship.
