Classic match

West Ham United 6-0 Brighton & Hove Albion
npower Championship
14 April 2012

Two years ago today West Ham United celebrated their biggest victory of the season against a Brighton side who still harboured play-off ambitions.

A ruthless display from Sam Allardyce's men was to blow them away, as West Ham built on a four-point Easter weekend.

The game was all but done-and-dusted inside the first ten minutes as a three goal burst put West Ham in an unassailable position.

Vaz Te notched a quickfire brace and Kevin Nolan quickly got in on the act too to leave Brighton stunned.

The Hammers didn't let up and inflicted further misery on Albion after the break, with Vaz Te completing his hat trick with a superb scissor-kick volley.

Carlton Cole added a fifth on 64 minutes and a Gary Dicker own goal 12 minutes from the end completed the rout.
