On this day - 30 September

Classic match

West Ham United 2-0 Birmingham City
Division One
30 September 1972

West Ham United's last victory on this date in the calendar came 41 years ago when Birmingham City were seen off at the Boleyn Ground.

The Hammers were hoping to bounce back from a narrow 1-0 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur the previous week and Peter Grotier's clean sheet paved the way for them to do just that.

Billy Bonds and Clyde Best were on target as the Hammers netted two unanswered goals in front of a 26,482 crowd.

The result left West Ham eleventh in the table, and their form would improve over the campaign en route to a sixth-place finish.
