Sakho scores again, as West Ham beat QPR

Sakho scores again, as West Ham beat QPR
West Ham’s impressive recent form continued as they beat Queens Park Rangers 2-0 at Upton Park

The Hammers took an early lead when a Stewart Downing corner was converted into his own goal by Nedum Onouha.

QPR started the better in the second period, however were hit by the killer second goal, as Diafra Sakho headed home from close range.

Inside of five minutes West Ham took an early lead, as a Downing corner was inadvertently directed into his net by Onouha, who was under pressure from Sakho.

Charlie Austin came close to an equaliser, however his curling effort was dealt with comfortably by Adrian.

QPR made a change at the break, bringing on Bobby Zamora for Junior Hoilett and the extra striker saw the visitors get back into the game.

Zamora crossed for his strike partner Austin, who sidefooted narrowly wide early in the second half.

West Ham doubled their lead through a scrappy effort, as a James Tomkins hooked crossed was converted from inside the six yard box by an inform Sakho.

Substitute Kevin Nolan really should made it 3-0 after good work from Downing, however West Ham recorded an easy win and their first clean sheet of the term.
