Sheffield United 0-2 West Ham United
Division Two
14 October 1989

West Ham United's last victory on this date in the calendar came back in 1989 when they enjoyed a successful trip to Sheffield United.

The Hammers were looking to bounce back from the pain of relegation the previous year, and a reasonable start saw them among the early front-runners by the time they travelled to Yorkshire.

Mark Ward netted both goals at Bramall Lane, including one from the penalty spot, as West Ham registered their third away win in a row.

The Londoners sat eighth in the table following this three-point haul, but would be unable to gain an immediate return to the top flight as they ended the campaign in seventh.
