Result: Stoke City 0 – 1 West Ham United
Location: Britannia Stadium – Stoke City
|Stoke – 0||West Ham – 1|

Jack Collison was brought on as an early substitution due to an injury and he was the one to bring about West Ham’s first goal in the last minute of first half stoppage time. As expected Stoke and West Ham battled hard in the first half with Stoke allowing West Ham to keep most of the possession. West Ham had 7 shots in the first half with 2 on target while Stoke took 3 with only 1 on target.
As predicted there wasn’t a whole lot in the match with Collison’s first half goal the only one separating the two sides. Also predicted was the scrappiness with both teams conceding 12 fouls.
The win for West Ham moves them to 12th place level on points (33) with Stoke (11th place) and Fulham (10th place).
