Watford started brightly but it was West Ham that got the early goal. In the 3rd minute a deep corner from Taylor was headed home by Tomkins.
In the 14th minute Taylor shot just wide from a free-kick from 25 yards out. At the other end Watford kept Green reasonably busy. In the 15th minute Sordell forced a good save from Green.
In the 25th minute Nolan crossed into the Watford area, Cole flicked the ball on and Reid pulled his shot just wide of the post. In the 43rd minute Collison headed over a Parker cross.
As the first half headed into the last minute O'Brien drove forward from the halfway line, had one shot rebound back to him, before shooting home from just inside the penalty area.
Watford had the best chance early on in the second half, with a Sordell 20 yard shot saved by Green at the expense of a corner. West Ham then began to control the game in midfield.
In the 68th minute Tomkins was forced off and was replaced by Faye, for his first action for West Ham. A few minutes after Tomkins was subbed a Nolan shot was deflected to Ilunga who pulled the ball back for Cole to side-foot home from 4 yards. After grabbing his goal Cole was replaced by Piquionne. Collison soon also made way, for Faubert.
In the 83rd minute a Parker long range effort just flew wide. Two minutes later and Nolan shot over the bar from only 6 yards out. Two minutes on again and Taylor shot just wide from outside of the area. Three minutes before the end of the game Parker shot left footed into the corner of the net to make it a comfortable win for the Irons.
A convincing win from West Ham sees them jump up the league into third place.
