Sam Allardyce believes West Ham are now back in the hunt for automatic promotion following their 6-0 win over Brighton on Saturday.

The Hammers went into the match having gone seven games without a win at Upton Park but dominated Gus Poyet’s side, with Portuguese winger Ricardo Vaz Te the star of the show as he bagged a hat-trick.
The win means Allardyce’s men are now just three points behind second-placed Southampton and, with three games of the season remaining, the experienced boss is determined to make sure the race for automatic promotion goes to the final day.
“We are in the race still, and we have closed on Southampton’s goal difference which could be a factor,” he said.
“We have to make sure we still have automatic promotion to play for on the last day against Hull.”
