Blues Res 2 West Ham Utd Res 1

Last updated : 30 November 2009 By Brian Cartlidge

Jake Jervis opened the scoring for Blues 16 minutes into the match at Damson Park and Damien Johnson gave new second string coach Malky Thomson's side a 2-0 first half lead just after the half-hour mark.

The Hammers pulled one goal back six minutes after the break with a Frank Nouble spot kick but Blues held on to take maximum points to lift themselves off the foot of the Barclays Premier Reserves League South table.
