Pellegrini admits West Ham ‘need to improve’ away form after Cardiff loss

Manuel Pellegrini has admitted that West Ham must improve their away form after seeing his side beaten 2-0 at struggling Cardiff City on Saturday.

Goals from Junior Hoilett and Victor Camarasa sealed a vital three points for Neil Warnock’s side, with West Ham now having failed to win in their last six away fixtures.

Pellegrini admits their form away from The London Stadium needs to improve, with The Hammers having not won on the road since a 2-1 success at Southampton on December 27.

“It was a disappointing result and performance. We need to look at what we’re doing away – in our last four away games we haven’t scored a goal. Today it was a very disappointing performance,” Pellegrini told the BBC’s MOTD.

“We improved a little bit in the end of the second half and Declan [Rice] hit the post but it was not enough to win against a team fighting against relegation.

“We need to improve – we need to see what we’re doing wrong away – it’s unacceptable to play four games away and not score one goal.”

The result leaves West Ham in ninth while Cardiff remain in 18th.
