The Hammers are second in the Championship, behind Southampton on goal difference only.

Fellow Ulsterman Trevor Carson wasn't in action for Hull City as the Tigers overcame Peterborough 1-0.

In League Two, Blair Adams got 90 minute in for Aidy Boothroyd's Northampton in a 5-2 defeat to Southend.

Also in the fourth tier, Billy Knott made his debut for Wimbledon, playing 72 minutes of the Dons 2-1 win at Port Vale.
