Two goals in the final three minutes of the first half allowed new West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola to savour a 2-1 derby win at 10-man Fulham in the Barclays Premier League.

The Hammers, who had beaten Newcastle the previous week in the Italian's first game in full charge, shocked the hosts with goals from Carlton Cole and Matthew Etherington.

Fulham striker Andrew Johnson was sent off seconds later and although captain Danny Murphy pulled one back from the penalty spot, in the second half the Hammers took the points.
