Robert Hall's terrific start to loan life continued with the winner for Oxford United on a busy day of action for several Hammers around the country.
The 17-year-old striker headed the only goal for Oxford in their 1-0 win at Hereford United, the second time he has helped them to an away success in a run of three victories on the road in succession for the Us.
The forward, recognised by Sam Allardyce last week as the brightest of the club's young talents, got a full 90 minutes under his belt.
Oxford are up to sixth in the League Two standings, while Callum McNaughton has helped inspire AFC Wimbledon up to fourth in the table. The Dons won 3-1 at home to Gillingham with McNaughton at the back, while Frank Nouble drew a blank for the Gills for the first time on his third appearance.
Olly Lee toasted extending his loan stay at Dagenham & Redbridge to the end of the month by helping them to a 2-1 home win against Crewe Alexandra. It ended a run of five straight defeats for the Daggers.
Finally in League Two, Ahmed Abdulla did not feature for Swindon Town on Friday night in their 2-0 defeat by Macclesfield Town and Jordan Brown sat out as Aldershot Town lost 3-2 at Accrington Stanley on Saturday.
Up in League One, Cristian Montano had a tough 49 minutes as Notts County went down 3-0 at high-fliers MK Dons, who the Hammers will meet in a behind closed doors game next week, while Jordan Spence came on at half-time of Bristol City's 5-0 loss at Blackpool in the Championship.
