A need for justice - Allardyce

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce says there is "a need" for justice after striker Andy Carroll's three match-ban by the Football Association.

His comments follow the announcement that the FA will reconsider its decision to uphold the ban on Friday.

The club had threatened legal action against the FA after their initial attempt to overturn the ban was rejected by an appeals panel. But the Premier League strugglers say they will now abide by any decision made at the arbitration hearing.

Allardyce goes on to say that many "more violent" acts have gone unpunished in the Premier League.
