West Ham beat Norwich 2-0, with two late goals and in so doing move four points clear of the relegation battle.

Collins headed in a cross in the 84th minute, and Norwich had no way back as Diame then scored the second in the last minutes of the match. Norwich could have seen a different result, but never took their chances with Snodgrass having the clearest opportunity as he was clear on goal and could not get on the score sheet. Sam Allardyce will be very pleased with the way his team yet again kept a clean sheet and remained patient for the win. West Ham supporters and sports betting punters who had faith in Allardyce should be quite satisfied with their run in form.

Sam Allardyce has engineered a new and improving West Ham. The team has kept their fourth consecutive clean sheet, with the club only ever managing that type of run way back in December 2005! So far this season, the club have managed to keep 13 clean sheets for the season which is always a good sign of a team’s concentration, discipline and spirit. Since West Ham drew against the current league leaders, Chelsea on the 29th January, the Hammers have beaten Swansea, Aston Villa and Norwich by 2-0.

If Sam manages to keep up this run of form it should very well see West Ham well away from any relegation battle which will only become more dire as the season draws to an end. The competition is fierce with any of the bottom ten teams a game away from slipping into playing in the Championship division next season.
