Harvey St Clair scored the only goal as Chelsea beat West Ham United 1-0 for a third successive Premier League 2 Division 1 victory.

Chelsea first went close at Dagenham when defender Joseph Colley hit the crossbar with a long-range effort.

The decisive goal came on 19 minutes when Kyle Scott capitalised on a poor kick from West Ham goalkeeper Nathan Trott to set up St Clair (pictured above, second left).

Martell Taylor-Crossdale had a goal disallowed as Chelsea pushed for a second.

The hosts went close to an equaliser when Jahmal Hector-Ingram’s deflected effort clipped a post late on.

Chelsea move up to sixth with their fourth victory in five PL2 matches, a point and a place above West Ham.
