Classic match

Orient 0-2 West Ham United
Division Two
18 April 1981

The Hammers' march to the Division Two title continued unabated as they completed a league double over fellow east Londoners Orient on this day 32 years ago.

West Ham had topped the table ever since November and this victory over the O's was the third in a run of five straight wins.

Jimmy Neighbour and Geoff Pike - a league ever-present that season - were the goalscorers as the visitors notched a 25th maximum-point haul of the campaign.

John Lyall's side would go on to claim the title by a huge 13-point margin in the era of two points for a win, having dropped only 18 points all season.
