Birmingham falls to West Ham

Birmingham falls to West Ham

Birmingham City slumped to another Premier League defeat on Monday, beaten 2-1 at home by West Ham United.

Marlon Harewood and Bobby Zamora earned West Ham the points that have their side ninth in the 20-strong division on 22 points. Birmingham is 19th with just nine points.

Birmingham, still to win at home in the league this season, took the lead on 11 minutes when Emile Heskey rounded Roy Carroll and rolled the ball into the back of the net.

But Zamora's excellent solo effort and a fine goal by Harewood just before halftime swung the match.
