Sam Allardyce wants his West Ham players to match the fight shown by the clubs threatened with Premier League relegation.

Sam Allardyce wants his West Ham players to match the fight shown by the clubs threatened with Premier League relegation.

With both QPR and Burnley coming up against the Hammers in the next week, Allardyce's side could yet have a big say on which teams fall into the Sky Bet Championship at the end of the season.

West Ham have won just one of their last 12 games and travel to face 19th-placed QPR today looking to address their own form.

"Coming up is QPR away, another local derby, then Burnley at home," he said.

"The players have to realise they are not on the beach yet - far from it. The focus should be that we want to finish on a high. Finishing the season well gives everyone a high going into the summer."
