West Ham are tenth in the Premier League after scoring a 1-0 away win against Blackburn Rovers.

Rovers keeper Brad Friedel kept out a Luis Boa Morte strike to keep his side in with a chance during a low-key match that did little to challenge defenders.

It was Hammers' striker Dean Ashton who saved the day by tapping in a goal from close range, seven minutes into the second half.

The victory gave West Ham their fourth win in a row over Rovers.
