Hull 0 West Ham 2

West Ham started with Faye, Diop, Collison and Carew replacing Reid, O'Brien, Sears and Piquionne. Danny Potts was named as a substitute.

There wasn't much to shout about for either side in the first half. Faubert was lively for West Ham down the right wing but Carew looked off the pace up front.

During the break Carew was replaced by Cole. The introduction of Cole was exactly what West Ham seemed to have been waiting for. Four minutes after the restart a Noble corner was flicked on by Cole at the near post and Baldock smashed the ball home at the far post.

Eight minutes later and Cole was again the provider. This time he played a perfect pass to send Collison through. The young Welshman slotted the ball home from inside the area.

The second goal for West Ham spurred Hull into action. In the 64th minute Fryatt managed to beat Green after meeting a corner with his head. Luckily for West Ham the ball hit Noble on the goal-line and bounced straight into Green's hands. A minute later a Mclean shot required a good save from Green and a hurried clearance from Tomkins.

After that West Ham defended very well, with Green in particular in sparkling form. In the 90th minute Fryatt got in behind the West Ham defence and forced a very good save from Green. A minute into injury time and Green was forced into another save to keep out Hobb's header. Just before the final whistle Green again pulled off a brilliant save to deny Koren.

Another good away win from West Ham ensures they retain 2nd place in the league. They now go into a welcome two week break that hopefully will be enough time for some of the many injured players to recover.

i think your criticism of carew is a little bit unfair he isnt outstanding but i think he has alot to offer and i didnt see todays game but he was ruled out yesterday for the game through injury which would explain his performance as he wasnt fit. But at the same time i think rob hall has to be given a chance because i think he'll score goals which carew and piquionne struggle to do. Moving on i think today was a very good win but we have to improve our home form i was very dissapointed with the draw against bristol city.

Cole seems to be doing for BFS what he couldn't ( or wouldn't) for Grant.
Glad he didn't go!

12:o6 is right; why is our home record such crap?

I watched the game on tv last night wasnt overly impressed with our positioning our passing and lack of leg speed except baldock mccartney , our best players wouldve been baldock, faye, green , falbert and cole second half ,2 players that have to be sold carew and piqquione , come january one striker one midfielder is needed Ausie Hammer
