Classic match

West Ham United 1-0 Norwich City
Division One
6 May 1985

West Ham United's home form was mixed in the 1984/85 season - they won seven, drew eight and lost six at the Boleyn Ground - but they emerged successful from this meeting with Norwich City.

The Canaries were firmly in the relegation fight, while West Ham were a couple of places clear in 18th and this win would go a long way to securing their safety.

Sub Bobby Barnes scored the only goal of the game for John Lyall's men, who remained in 18th place thanks to the three points.

A further six points from their last five games would see the Hammers finish in 16th, two points clear of Norwich, who were relegated in 20th.
