Goals from Valon Behrami, Carlton Cole and Julien Faubert gave West Ham a 3-0 win over a nine-man Hull side in real trouble at the foot of the table.

West Ham, who climbed to 13th place in the table, were given a dream start by Behrami who combined with Guillermo Franco to fire past Boaz Myhill.

Myhill then kept West Ham at bay until Cole got on the end of Faubert's pass to slide an angled drive under Myhill and give the Hammers their first back-to-back league victories since March 2009. Hull had Craig Fagan sent off for two bookable offences and had Anthony Gardner stretchered off with a late ankle injury.
