Freddie Sears put the seal on a sweet 2-0 victory for West Ham as they climbed out of the relegation zone and sent Wolves crashing to the foot of the Barclays Premier League.
Winger Sears, a product of the West Ham academy and lifelong Hammers fan, struck in the 79th minute for his first goal since netting on his debut in March 2008.
West Ham were already ahead, but they owed a debt of gratitude to Wolves right-back Ronald Zubar for their 51st-minute opener. Zubar let the ball trickle in off his knee after Carlton Cole had taken an air shot.
