West Ham extended their impressive away record with a 4-1 win at Nottingham Forest to move into the Championship play-off spots.

28415 - Hammers romp to victory at Forest

Without a win at Upton Park this season, the Hammers are unbeaten on the road and they took the lead after 21 minutes when Forest defender Luke Chambers sliced Matt Taylor's cross into his own net.

Headers from Kevin Nolan and Carlton Cole gave the visitors a 3-0 advantage at the break. Robbie Findley reduced the deficit for Forest before Winston Reid's late tap sealed the victory for Sam Allardyce's men.

The Hammers showed no signs of missing the influential Scott Parker, who was not included in the squad with the midfielder on the brink of a move to Tottenham.
