Andy Carroll: Scored his first goal for West Ham in the defeat to Tottenham

Loan star Carroll got off the mark for West Ham with a consolation goal in the 3-1 defeat by Tottenham on Sunday.

Allardyce was happy to see Carroll break his duck and he is confident the 23-year-old will thrive at Upton Park if they play to the striker's strengths.

"It was brilliant for him and about time too, to be honest," said Allardyce.

"It hasn't meant anything to us but it gets him off the mark.

"It shows the rest of my players if we put the ball in the right area, Andy will score."

air play to the lad. I'd like to think I 'd have no fear of heading off to the other side of the world to coach, but in truth, I don't have the cajones. Hopefully he can make a decent living out of it.
