Sam expects goals from Carew

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has backed John Carew to hit at least 12 goals this season.

Norway striker Carew opened his account for the Hammers with a towering header after coming off the bench for Carlton Cole to secure a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace.

"We are expecting John to score the 12-15 mark, the same as Carlton," said Allardyce.

"Getting off the mark will do him a lot of good and a little back-header nearly won it for us at the end.

"Carlton had done a good job but he tired in the heat, so John came on and it brought a little bit more energy into our team."
