Did you know that West Ham have won three successive home games against Wigan Athletic in the Premier League – this after failing to win the previous three (L2 D1).

Any comments or predictions?

West Ham 2-0 Wigan
1-0 Jarvis 21’

The happy Hammers move up to 10th in the table and look like earning Sam Allardyce a new contract.

We were very lucky to win this game and Wigan were by far the better team especially in the 2nd period.

It was good to see Nolan score the 100th goal of his career and Andy Carroll once again caused havoc in the Latics defence.

Other than that it was a very lack luster display from the Irons and our keeper Jaaskelainen had another excellent display in goal.

a truly dreadful game.

Wigan look doomed. 5 yard passes along the backline are not going to keep them up. they were pathetic in the final third and really should have beaten us but you can never really complain after a 2-0 win, especially when the second goal was a result of two simultaneous over head kicks (well Nolan's almost was) - you don't see many of them in your lifetime.

up to tenth and looking to nail down that position at least now ready to build for next year. with every place being worth £700k it could have a big impact on our transfer budget so a strong finish remains a priority and we have a couple of winnable games in there as well.

we've also kept up our record of scoring in every home game (i will include the Man City 0-0 since we had a legitimate goal wrongly disallowed) which is in stark contrast to our patchy home form last season. we just need to sort out our pathetic away record now.
