Hammers end losing streak

Published Add your comment

Freddie Sears was the hero on his debut as West Ham ended their run of 4-0 defeats with A 2-1 victory over Blackburn at Upton Park.

The teenager came off the bench with a quarter of an hour left and made his mark six minutes later, finishing with a diving header after Brad Friedel had saved his first shot.

Roque Santa Cruz had given Rovers the lead in the 20th minute but Dean Ashton levelled before the break.
