West Ham 2 Hull 0

Final whistle - "BUBBLES..." --- 2-0
93 Lovely free flowing football here, but Carlton Cole scuffs a shot straight at Matt Duke. And that's it. 2-0 to West Ham and Hull have lost their sixth game in a row!
88 Zola looks very serious on the sidelines, but he must be elated with his teams performance here. Nsereko is bundled to the ground by Andy Dawson but he's okay. Welcome to the Premiership!
86 David Di Michele gets a hug from Scott Parker and a standing ovation from the crowd as he jogs off the pitch. Savio Nsereko, West Ham's new signing, comes on for his debut.
50 Hull's defending is woeful here. A long hopeful ball from Illunga is not dealt with and West Ham win a free kick. The ball is crossed in by Noble, and it falls to Di Michele who smashes a shot in low! The ball comes off the post and Cole puts the ball in! That's his fifth goal in five league games.
32 Great footwork from Di Michele and he flashes in a shot from outside the area which Duke parries. Cole then curls a shot in from a narrow angle, and again Duke can only parry it. This time there's a West Ham player following up and Di Michele puts the ball into the net. Di Michele has deserved that.
21 Missed penalty by Noble: Saved! Brilliant save there from Matt Duke. He leaps to his left and palms the ball away!
20 West Ham are piling the pressure on here, and get another corner. It's headed clear, but not very far. Upson lifts the ball into the box and Cole brings the ball down surrounded by three Hull defenders. He goes down and the ref points to the penalty spot! Noble to take!
