Allardyce vows to continue 'massive progress'

Sam Allardyce feels West Ham have made "massive progress" in a short time, but warned there is still hard work ahead.

The Irons have been away in Dubai for some warm-weather training this week as Allardyce looks to rejuvenate his squad for the closing 12 matches of the campaign, which continues with the visit of Tottenham on Monday, February 25.

With a seven-point cushion over the bottom three, no-one at Upton Park can rest easy just yet.

As the club prepares for a new era which could see them take up tenancy at the Olympic venue in August 2015, Allardyce knows the club must continue to show the same determination which saw them secure promotion back up to the top flight at the first time of asking last May.

Speaking to United Arab Emirates-based daily sports newspaper Sport3600, Allardyce said: "They (the board) gave me a two-year period to (get promoted) and I did it in the first year and that was a massive achievement.

"We are 11th with 12 games to go and only need at the very, very maximum 10 points from the last 12 games to make sure we are safe. The progress has been massive in a short period of time."
