West Ham overcame Derby County with an encouraging performance and 2-0 win at Pride Park to advance to the 5th round of the FA Cup.

David Moyes will have felt a slight easing in the pressure and would have been encouraged as his side delivered to deliver back-to-back victories for the under fire Scot.

An in form Derby were always going to pose a serious threat, but West Ham looked assured and confident from the off and were ahead in the opening 10 minutes.

Jarrod Bowen latched onto a well-worked flick on from Tomas Soucek which he fired beyond the keeper to settle the game early in our Hammers favour, with Derby being undone by a demonstration of Premier League quality.

The away end were in full voice throughout and it set the tone for a comfortable evening, in which West Ham arguably should have put the game to bed sooner, but alas half time arrived with only the 1 goal advantage.

Our Hammers doubled the lead only 5 minutes into the second half however, with Antonio smashing in from a cross to pretty much wrap up the tie with the hosts never really looking in it again.

David Moyes will have been delighted with his players for such a professional performance to advance into the next round of the competition, where Manchester United await at Old Trafford.
