West Ham power past QPR

LONDON, Oct 2, 2012, Reuters: 23:25 IST
West Ham United climbed to seventh place in the Premier League with a 2-1 win at bottom club Queens Park Rangers on Monday, the London club’s first away win of the season.

First-half goals from record signing Matt Jarvis, bought from Wolverhampton Wanderers for 10.75 million pounds ($17.36 million), and Ricardo Vaz Te sealed West Ham’s victory over their London rivals.

Jarvis’ first goal for West Ham, a neatly-taken header past the despairing dive of former Inter Milan and Champions League-winning goalkeeper Julio Cesar, stunned the home side who are still winless and with just two points from six games.

Vaz Te made it 2-0 with a crafty volley at the far post after a corner was scrambled away by QPR who rallied in the second half courtesy of an unstoppable looping shot by Adel Taarabt on 57 minutes.

Their charge was halted by the sending-off of substitute Samba Diakite 15 minutes from time following two swift yellow cards and West Ham moved to 11 points, five behind leaders Chelsea and level with Tottenham Hotspur and West Bromwich Albion. The promoted east London club showed their ambition by signing names like England international Jarvis heading into their latest Premier League campaign.

Mallorca lose

Real Mallorca suffered their first defeat in La Liga this season when they had defender Ximo Navarro sent off after ten minutes and lost 1-0 at Getafe on Monday.

The islanders had made a strong start forcing home keeper Miguel Angel Moya into two sharp saves before Navarro flew into a challenge on Diego Castro.

The referee showed a straight red card, but Getafe, who started the game in the relegation zone, had to wait until the 49th minute to take the lead when Castro hammered a shot high into the net after a pull back in the area.
