The Hammers played really good football right from the kick-off., adopting the push-and-run style on a hard ground that made the ball difficult to control. There was no doubt that the final result would be in our favour, for within five minutes of the start we had taken the lead through Ron Brett and further goals by Tony Scott, Andy Srnillie and Derek Woodley enabled us to be comfortably in front by 4-1 at the finish.
This victory enabled us to climb to fourth place in the Combination table, and with game? in hand of third-place Arsenal we could move into-that spot if our second-string's run of success continues. However, it will not be oossible to challenge Chelsea or the Spurs for the championship, as these clubs have made it almost a " two-horse race " from the start
