LONDON (AFP) - West Ham piled on the misery for QPR with a 2-1 win at Loftus Road on Monday that left their London rivals rooted to the bottom of the Premier League.

Sam Allardyce's side moved up to seventh after first half goals from Matt Jarvis and Ricardo Vaz Te put the Hammers firmly in control.

QPR got one back through Adel Taarabt after the break, but the late dismissal of Mali midfielder Samba Diakite killed off the hosts, who have now lost four and drawn two of their first six matches.

In contrast, West Ham celebrated their third win of the campaign and their first on their travels.
