West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce backs Andy Carroll to add more goals to his game.

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has challenged Andy Carroll to add goals to his game following his return from injury.

The Hammers striker claimed two assists for Kevin Nolan as they beat Swansea City 2-0 on Saturday, before he was sent off for sending a flailing arm at Chico Flores.

"Andy's not at his best either but, once the players start feeding Andy with the right service, his ability to hold the ball up and cause problems aerially is obviously his main threat," Allardyce told reporters.

"He just needs to start scoring a goal or two, which is now his next challenge.

"He's made two for Kevin. Next game let's make another couple and score one yourself."

West Ham are currently 18th in the Premier League.
