Good Friday: Barnsley 0 West Ham 4

West Ham maintained their automatic promotion hopes with an emphatic away win at Barnsley.

West Ham had seen rivals Reading move to the top of the Championship by beating Leeds in the early kick-off and, knowing they needed victory to stay in touch at the top, the Hammers overwhelmed Barnsley.

The victory moved the Upton Park side three points behind second-placed Southampton, who have a game in hand. And the Hammers set a club record of 12 away league wins in a single season.
