Martinez hat-trick earns West Ham big win


Toni Martinez continued his prolific scoring run with a hat-trick as West Ham United cruised to a 4-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Telford in Premier League 2 Division 2.

Martinez made it 12 goals in 11 matches in all competitions with an early penalty and then completed his treble with a goal in the closing stages of each half.

Dan Kemp hit the Hammers’ other goal on the half hour mark as the Londoners stayed fifth in the table, but cut the gap on their fourth-placed opponents to a single point.

Wolves’ next match takes them to Middlesbrough in Darlington on Friday, 6 January, while West Ham entertain Norwich City at Dagenham on Monday, 9 January.
