Match reaction

'We changed the system and once we got Freddie Piquionne and Carlton Cole on, it was then that the game changed in our favour. For me, it was only a matter of time before we started to score goals.'

Sam Allardyce felt his West Ham United side were eventually good value for their 2-1 win at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday afternoon after a first-half in which the Championship favourites were rocked by a committed Coventry City display.

Big Sam added: 'We changed it round at half time and I told the players that they were attacking the end where we had 6,500 fans who had travelled all the way to support us and we'd not played well enough to get them behind us.'

For home boss Andy Thorn it was the same old story after an excellent performance from his side ended with them even further away from safety at the foot of the table.

'When you are bringing Carlton Cole and Piquionne off the bench, it gives you a good armoury but I can't fault my players because I thought we stuck to our principles, mixed it up and played some good stuff but it wasn't to be.

'I am sure the neutral would say we deserved something from the game. People who aren't here will see another defeat but we are trying to play the right way and we have to keep going and the big man upstairs has got to give me an ace some time soon.'
