Teddy keeps the points at Upton Park

Teddy Sheringham's second half goal gave the Hammers three points against West Bromwich Albion last night.

A hardworking performance saw the Irons dominate the Baggies in the first half without scoring, but the veteran striker put Dailly's knock-down into the net after an hour.

Yossi Benayoun came close with a one-on-one, while Harewood, Ferdinand, and Sheringham had other chances.

Shaka Hislop was injured in a clash with Kanu and Steve Bywater made his first return appearance for West Ham in the Premiership.

West Brom gave the Londoners a few scares in the second half but West Ham held on for the win. The Irons are now somewhat settled in eighth in the Premiership, but with Manchester United and Liverpool yet to play.

West Ham: Hislop (Bywater 60), Repka, Ferdinand, Gabbidon, Konchesky, Benayoun (Newton 90), Reo-Coker (Dailly 45), Mullins, Etherington, Sheringham, Harewood.
Subs Not Used: Bellion, Zamora.
