Classic match

West Ham United 4-3 Queens Park Rangers
Division One
2 November 1968

West Ham United have been involved in two seven-goal matches on this date in the calendar - the second of which came in 1968 when Queens Park Rangers visited the Boleyn Ground,

It was the Hammers who were able to celebrate taking both points from the London derby as they followed up an 8-0 victory over Sunderland in their previous home fixture.

All three of West Ham's World Cup winning heroes - Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters - were on target, while Harry Redknapp rounded off the list of home scorers.

QPR notched three goals of their own, but it was to no avail as the Hammers emerged triumphant.

The 1968/69 campaign would see Hurst notch 31 goals as his team secured an eighth place finish in the table.
