Cristian Montano, Robert Hall and Frank Nouble all scored on Saturday to make it a good day on the road in League Two for Sam Allardyce's young strikers.
Montano struck on his debut for Swindon Town as Paolo Di Canio's men won away to Accrington Stanley. It was his second goal in as many games after he signed off with a strike for previous club Notts County last week. Hammers club-mate Ahmed Abdulla was missing for Swindon with injury.
Hall, 17, had the most emphatic afternoon, coming off the bench to rescue a point for Oxford United away to Macclesfield. The youngster found the net in the fourth minute of added time for his fourth goal in seven matches, having earlier hit the bar in an impressive 45-minute run-out.
Nouble grabbed his third goal in just five outings for Gillingham as they won 5-2 away to Torquay United. The 20-year-old has just extended his stay with the Kent club for another month, having made a considerable impact to help them rise up the standings.
Elsewhere, Callum McNaughton suffered a rare defeat at the back for AFC Wimbledon as they went down 3-1 at home to Crewe Alexandra while Jordan Brown was an unused substitute for Aldershot Town in their 2-1 loss at Barnet.
Finally, in League Two, Olly Lee played 70 minutes for Dagenham & Redbridge as they lost 3-2 at home to Plymouth Argyle. Down in the Conference, Dominic Vose got the last 17 minutes for Braintree Town as they were held 3-3 at home by Bath City.
Marek Stech made his bow for League One side Yeovil Town but could not stop them going down 3-0 at home to Carlisle United. The Czech U21 keeper was unable to do much about the goals and earned praise post-match for helping to keep the scoreline respectable.
Up in the Championship, Jordan Spence played 83 minutes for manager-less Bristol City as they went down 2-1 at home to Peterborough United. On Friday night, Herita Ilunga had made his debut for Doncaster Rovers but could not help them avoid losing 3-0 at home to Leeds United.
