Six of the Best - Norwich City

West Ham United go into Tuesday's Barclays Premier League clash with Norwich City on Tuesday looking for a third consecutive victory.

To continue the build-up to the game, takes a look at six memorable home wins over the Canaries.

West Ham United 2-1 Norwich City
Premier League
1 January 2013

The Hammers got 2013 off to the perfect start with a New Year's Day victory over Norwich City.

There were only three minutes on the clock when the Hammers won a penalty for Mark Noble to convert and give the Hammers the lead.

It got even better for the hosts on 26 minutes thanks to a Joey O'Brien goal, and West Ham had further chances to extend their advantage before the break.

A third goal would not arrive though, and Russell Martin ensured a nervy finish when he scored in stoppage time, but West Ham held on to secure the points.

FA Cup third round
8 January 2005

The Hammers caused an FA Cup upset of sorts when they faced Norwich City at the Boleyn Ground in a third round tie in 2004/05.

Alan Pardew's side were in the midst of their successful promotion season from the Championship, while Norwich were a Premier League side.

But the Hammers closed the gap to knock the Canaries off their perch with a Marlon Harewood goal.

However, West Ham's Cup run would not last much longer, as Sheffield United knocked them out on penalties at the next stage.

West Ham United 4-0 Norwich City
Division One
11 April 1992

The 1991/92 season did not bring much reason to cheer, although one bright spot was this 4-0 victory over Norwich City towards the end of the campaign.

A Julian Dicks penalty, plus two goals from Matthew Rush and one from Ian Bishop overwhelmed the Canaries, who were also involved in the thick of the relegation battle.

The Canaries would ultimately survive, but there would be no such reprieve for the Hammers, who would go on to lose four of their final six fixtures and end rock-bottom, six points adrift of safety.

Division One
1 January 1974

The shoe was on the other foot in this meeting between the teams, when the Hammers delivered another nail in the Canaries' relegation coffin.

At the time of this fixture, West Ham were in equally dire straits, just a place off the bottom, but a 4-2 success paved the way for an escape.

Graham Paddon scored twice in this New Year's Day fixture, while Bobby Gould and Trevor Brooking also hit the target on a successful day for the Hammers.

West Ham remained second bottom of the table after this win, but would climb to 18th by the season's end, while Norwich were stuck at the bottom.

Division Two
13 February 1937

Joseph Stanley Foxall and John Morton both notched braces as the Hammers swept Norwich aside in the 1936/37 season.

Morton's final goal tally of the season stretched to 14, while Foxall netted ten himself as the Hammers ended up sixth in the standings.

Norwich were further down the table in 17th.

West Ham United 1-0 Norwich City
Division Two
18 February 1935

West Ham's first Boleyn Ground meeting with Norwich in the Football League came back in February 1935.

It was a successful occasion for the Hammers too, as Jimmy Ruffell scored the only goal of the game.

This win left the Hammers second in the Division Two table, but they would miss out on promotion by a heartbreaking margin at the end of the campaign, as they finished level on points with second placed Bolton, but with an inferior goal average.
