Allardyce urges West Brom to stop ‘easy goals’ in relegation fight


West Bromwich Albion manager Sam Allardyce believes the team cannot concede easy goals if they want to stay up.

The Baggies endured a poor 3-0 home defeat to rivals Aston Villa during the first match of Allardyce’s time at the club.

Matters were not helped by Jake Livermore getting a red card early in the game.

“Yes I am upset – I couldn’t be anything else other than upset,” Allardcye told reporters when asked about Livermore’s red.

“When I arrived one of the first things I said to the players was ‘lads one thing we can’t have is any more sendings off.’

“So it really is very disappointing.

“They had a couple before I arrived. I’ve done my homework. That can’t happen again if we want to get out of trouble.

“And we have got to stop letting in easy goals – which Villa’s first one was. It was easy.

“I really need to work as quickly as I can and as often as I can on these elements.

“I just won’t accept another sending off no matter what.

“If we keep doing that we’ll have no chance of getting out of trouble.

“But what I can do is keep working on the lads not allowing the opposition to score easy goals.”
