West Ham record back-to-back wins against Stoke

West Ham 3 – Stoke 0 (Premier League, March 5, 2011) (MOTD highlights) The Hammers broke the deadlock after 20 minutes against Stoke, Mark Noble poked a straight ball through to Demba Ba down the middle and the striker bundled his way past Begovic and Wilson for an ugly – but crucial – goal. West Ham doubled their lead with a simple set-play, Hitzlsperger claimed his third assist since returning from injury curling in a free-kick that Manuel da Costa headed home. (First half highlights) West Ham sealed their second home win on the bounce eight minutes from time when the ever excellent Scotty Parker began a move which Thomas Hitzlsperger smashed home from 10-yards.
