HULL City made it four wins out of four against London teams with a 1-0 victory over West Ham United yesterday.

The Black and Amber Army are now hoping Chelsea, who come to Hull on October 29, will be the next London scalp.
Supporter Richard Jackson, 35, of Castle Grange, west Hull, watched City's victory with his daughter, Megan, eight.
He said: "Bring on Chelsea. What a top result."
Given the Tigers fantastic form in the season so far, many City fans were confident of victory against the Hammers.
Some waved Brazilian flags in a bid to spur South American star Geovanni – who hit the back of the net against Fulham, Arsenal and Tottenham – on to score against yet another London side.
But it was not until the 51st minute City broke the deadlock against Gianfranco Zola's West Ham side.
The crowd erupted when Michael Turner's header put the Tigers in the lead.
Supporters chanted: "Are you Scunthorpe in disguise?" – referring to the similar team colours shared by West Ham and the League One side.
It was City's fifth win in the top flight and their third victory in a row.
Taking the three points sees them retain third spot in the Premier League.
