West Ham Escape the Relegation Zone
West Ham beat Doncaster Rovers 1-0, with a goal in the 5th minute from Kevin Nolan.
The Irons started with only one change from last week, with Collison in for Sears.
Doncaster had by far the better of the possession in the first half but failed to create any clear cut chances. Nolan's goal came after same great work from Collison and a great chip over the Doncaster defence to find Nolan, who volleyed home from 8 yards.
In the second half Doncaster did a little better in attacking the West Ham goal and towards the end of the game West Ham had a few nervous moments in defence. At the other end Cole (on for Piquionne) had a great chance to extend West Ham's lead in the 69th minute, but slammed his shot into the side of the net.
Despite another far from convincing display West Ham will be delighted in securing their first win since the beginning of March and their first three points away from home in six months.
