Portsmouth 0 West Ham 2

SECOND-HALF goals by Dylan Tombides and Ahmed Abdulla saw West Ham's under-18s claim their first win in eight games.

Like the first team, Tony Carr's side had not tasted a league victory since the opening day of the season - at Everton.

But Tombides and Abdulla both struck in Eastleigh to extend the Hammers' unbeaten run to three matches. Tombides has been in great form for the under-16 team this season and made the most of his under-18 debut by opening the scoring.

Abdulla then made the game safe to delight Academy boss Tony Carr.

Carr said: "It was a good win in what was a scrappy game on a pitch more suited for rugby than football."
