West Ham United 3-0 Cardiff City
Division Two
24 November 1979

West Ham United's biggest win from this date in the calendar came back in 1979 when Cardiff City were soundly beaten at the Boleyn Ground.

Having defeated fellow Welsh side Swansea City the previous week, the Hammers made it two from two against opponents from the Principality.

Two Ray Stewart penalties did most of the damage, while David Cross was also on target for the home side.

The win left West Ham seventh in the table - the same place in Division Two they occupied at the end of the campaign.
