West Ham United 1-2 Nottingham Forest
Division One
12 May 1984

12 May has been a fallow date in the character for the Hammers, with only two games played and no points recorded.

Indeed, the only goal they have scored on this particular day came in a 2-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest in the penultimate game of the 1983/84 campaign.

Ray Stewart notched it from the penalty spot - one of eight successful spot kick conversions for the Scot that campaign.

Despite closing the season with another defeat to Everton two days later, West Ham ended up in ninth place.
