Matthew Upson had the last laugh on the the Birmingham boo-boys as Mark Noble´s second-half penalty secured a 1-0 victory for West Ham.

But Noble ensured Alan Curbishley´s side regained their pride after the home reversal by Manchester City with a 68th-minute spot-kick after Blues goalkeeper Colin Doyle was adjudged to have brought down Craig Bellamy.
