West Ham United U23s fell to a disappointing 2-0 defeat at the hands of Blackburn Rovers in Premier League 2.
Jack Vale gave the home side the lead after just four minutes, powering home a header from a corner.
The Irons struggled to test the Blackburn defence in the first period but came alive in the second half, as Sonny Perkins went agonisingly close before Manny Longelo twice tested Antonis Stergiakis in the home side's goal.
Armstrong Okoflex found what he thought was the equaliser for the Hammers with a curling effort but was ruled to have been offside, before Krisztián Hegyi made a sensational one-on-one save to deny Vale his second.
As the away side pressed for a way back into the game, Blackburn struck again in added time through substitute Luke Brennan.
