West Ham won the London derby 2-1 against QPR for their first away win of the campaign and condemned ten-man Rangers to remain at the foot of the table. Sam Allardyce's side had the perfect start when Matthew Jarvis headed West Ham into a third minute lead from a Kevin Nolan cross.
The visitor's looked to be coasting at this stage particularly as the home side where booed off at half-time.
The Hammers where struggling at this stage but when Samba Diakite was sent off with 16 minutes remaining QPR's chance of a snatching an equaliser disappeared and West Ham held on to claim the three points.
