West Ham United 2-1 Fulham
Division Two
15 December 1956

West Ham United's last win on this day came way back in 1956 when they celebrated a 2-1 London derby success over Fulham.

The Hammers were mid-table in Division Two with Fulham in a similar position and it was the hosts who came out on top.

John Bond and Malcolm Musgrove were the men on target for West Ham as the east Londoners held off the Cottagers' challenge.

West Ham would go on to finish eighth in the table that season, with Fulham three places behind.
