Classic match

West Ham United 2-1 Nottingham Forest
Championship
21 January 2012

West Ham climbed to the top of the Championship summit as two Mark Noble penalties helped them to a 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest at the Boleyn Ground on 21 January 2012.

A largely forgettable first half was brightened right at the end when Noble converted after Guy Moussi was controversially penalised for handball.

The midfielder held his nerve from the spot for a second time as Chris Gunter was the man adjudged to have handled Sam Baldock's effort after 63 minutes.

Lewis McGugan scored a long-range screamer moments before the final whistle but the Hammers secured all three points.
