On This Day: Zamora and Cole blunt relegated Rams


West Ham United ended a three-match losing run by beating Derby County 2-1 at the Boleyn Ground on this day in 2008.

The Hammers took the lead against the already-relegated Rams through Bobby Zamora's first-half strike before former West Ham full-back Tyrone Mears leveled from long range.

However, Alan Curbishley's side would not be denied as substitute Carlton Cole struck with 13 minutes remaining at the Boleyn Ground to secure all three points.

West Ham finished the season in tenth place with 49 points, while Derby were relegated with just one win and eleven points.
