Striker James Beattie's first goals of the season earned Stoke a 2-1 victory at home to West Ham.
The burly forward scored his opener from an 11th-minute penalty only for Matthew Upson to head an equaliser before the interval.
However, Beattie had the last word when he forced home Ricardo Fuller's cross at the far post with 20 minutes to go.
