West Ham United secure their third win in a row in pre-season as they beat Bournemouth 2-0, thanks to goals from Kevin Nolan and Jack Collison.

West Ham United secured their third win a row in pre-season as goals from Kevin Nolan and Jack Collison helped them overcome Championship side Bournemouth.

The Hammers took the lead in the ninth minute when Guy Demel raided down the right and whipped a cross for Nolan, who headed home from six yards out.

Nolan almost got his and Sam Allardyce's side's second when he and Demel linked up again, but this time his header cannoned off the crossbar and was hacked clear.

However, a minute later the Hammers did double their lead when Modibo Maiga sent Collison through one-on-one with Darryl Flahavan and he rounded the keeper and slotted the ball into the net.

Joe Cole could have scored late in the game but Flahavan rushed out to make the save and the former England international could not turn in the rebound, as the Hammers were forced to settle for a two-goal win.
