On This Day: West Ham end 1986/87 season on a high with Manchester City win


West Ham United's 1986/87 season was a largely disappointing one, but it ended on a high note with a 2-0 win over Manchester City on this day 33 years ago.

The Hammers had finished third in the previous campaign, but a variety of factors meant they got nowhere near reaching those heights again, and could only finish 15th this time around.

Just 18,413 supporters turned out for this Boleyn Ground fixture, which was settled by goals from Liam Brady and Tony Cottee - the latter's 28th of the season in all competitions.
