Charlton 4 West Ham 0

West Ham played the first half like a team resigned to life in the Championship whilst Charlton played like a team fighting for their survival.

Charlton's first came in the 24th minute when Darren Ambrose strolled into the box completely unmarked and scored from 7 yards. Their second came in the 34th minute when Jorome Thomas was allowed to run unchallenged into the box, ghosted past Davenport as if he wasn't there, and slotted the ball home from 9 yards. The third came when Hasselbaink won the ball off Konchesky just in the West Ham half and passed to Bent who ran between the statue like West Ham central defence of Ferdinand and Davenport and beat Green from just inside the penalty area.

West Ham actually had one shot on goal in the 36th minute when Quashie tried a hopeful pile driver from 25 yards but it flew straight at the keeper.

Curbishley brought on Harewood for the second half and it made all the difference as we only conceded one goal in the half. In the 80th minute Jerome Thomas met a Darren Ambrose cross from 12 yards to net Charlton's fourth.

Things are certainly not looking good for West Ham and Alan Curbishley.
