BBC Sport - West Ham v Newcastle: Sam Allardyce on weekend fixture

Allardyce laments lack of 'cutting edge'

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce says his side's "cutting edge" seems to have deserted them in the last two games.

The Hammers lost to Everton and drew with Aston Villa and Allardyce is hoping their goal-scoring form returns against Newcastle on Saturday.

The Upton Park outfit are currently lying sixth in the Premier League, one place and one point behind this weekend's opponents.
