On this day - 18 November

Classic match

Leeds United 0-1 West Ham United 
Premier League
18 November 2000   

West Ham United recorded a rare win at Leeds United on this day 14 years ago.

Having waited 22 years since their last victory at Elland Road, Nigel Winterburn popped up with his one and only goal for the Hammers.

Fresh from a 4-1 home win over Manchester City a week earlier, Harry Redknapp handed a first start to French-born frontman Kaba Diawara. 

In the absence of an unwell Paolo Di Canio, the visitors struck the decisive blow on the stroke of half-time, as the former Arsenal left-back stooped to head Trevor Sinclair's right-wing centre beyond Paul Robinson. 

It proved sufficient to lift the Hammers up two spots to eleventh, while extending their unbeaten run to five in all competitions. Redknapp's men would end the campaign down in 15th spot, but still some eight points clear of the bottom three.
