Junior Stanislas scored on his first start for West Ham as Gianfranco Zola's homegrown youngsters kept them in the hunt for European qualification with a 2-0 win

Stanislas, 19, opened the scoring against Sunderland just before the break, then 20-year-old James Tomkins doubled the advantage after the restart at Upton Park.

Victory took the hosts to seventh in the Barclays Premier League but left Sunderland in deep relegation trouble.
