Allardyce praises 'outstanding' players
- From the section Football
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is delighted with his "outstanding" players following West Ham's 3-0 win over Cardiff in the second leg of the play-off semi-final at Upton Park.
The Hammers are through to the final at Wembley on 19 May after a 5-0 aggregate win, and will face either Blackpool or Birmingham.
The former Bolton boss says he is pleased with the way his team handled the pressure of being favourites and adds that they will have to deal with that tag again in the final.
