Hammers smash Forest for biggest win of season

By Hughie Southon

West Ham 4 Nottingham Forest 0

Biggest win of the season pout of the bottom three and up to 16th with four goals in seven minutes and Danny Ings grabbing a couple on his first time in the starting line up.

Ok Forest looked pretty disorganised but we would be nit picking to complain and on the basis that you can only beat what’s in front of you there can be absolutely nothing but wild celebrations.

This was the Irons we have been waiting for and after a nervous fist half the Hammers took serious control and there was absolutely no way back for the east midlands outfit.

Ings made u[ for a couple of first half misses with close range shots in the 71stand 73rd minutes before Declan curled home a wonderful lofted strike in the 78th and Mikey added a gouth soon after arriving as an 80th minute sub.

Veyone that Ings hit a post along with Bowen so no complaints whatsoever.

It was never the greatest game but four goals and a clean sheet made it feel like one and well done Ings who looked comfortable in the one up role.

Defensively we were rarely troubled and with Declan doing his thinfg in midfield as ever and Tomas Soucek looking the part in an attacking roleĀ  we can all – like the team feeel a load more comforttable.
