Sam Allardyce admitted his West Ham side were left frustrated by their 1-1 Premier League draw with bottom of the table QPR.

Joe Cole’s first West Ham goal for 10 years earned the hosts a point as Loic Remy was denied a dream debut for QPR, who are unbeaten in five games.

Remy, an £8million signing from Marseille, scored after 14 minutes and the Hammers found Julio Cesar in inspired form before Joe Cole tapped in after 68 minutes when the Brazilian goalkeeper could only parry substitute Carlton Cole’s header.

“We couldn’t have created more opportunities to score more goals,” Allardyce said.

“We’re looking very dejected almost like we’ve lost in the dressing room, because we knew that performance should’ve got three points.

“I said to the lads, ‘look, carry on like that and you’ll win more games than you’ll draw’.

“At the other end all we’ve got done by is the sucker punch, which we talked about before the game.

“It’s an encouraging performance to do what we did today, but the frustration and disappointment was it didn’t lead to what should’ve been a comfortable victory.”
