Hammers Back to Winning Ways

West Ham have shaken off the cobwebs with a deserved - yet contentious - 2-1 victory over Middlesbrough. Deserved due to the performance from the Hammers, but contentious due to the fact that their second goal did not cross the line.

Substitute Teddy Sheringham broke the deadlock in the second half when he converted Paul Konchesky's cross, and later Mark Schwartzer was adjudged to have let the ball cross the line from a Chris Riggott error. Boro managed to score from a corner on 87 minutes but the Irons held on for the win.

West Ham are now 9th on the table.
