West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce complains about the dismissal of goalkeeper Adrian, which he claims cost his side victory in their 0-0 draw at Southampton.
Adrian was sent off for handling outside the area in the second half but the Hammers defended bravely as Saints pushed late on, trying to continue their march towards a top-four finish.
The stalemate ensured West Ham's first clean sheet in 18 away games, but Allardyce confirmed that the club will not be able to sign former Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra for "administrative reasons".
