Nolan scores 2 as West Ham beats Swansea 2-0 in league, Carroll sets up goals before red card

  • Print

LONDON - Andy Carroll twice set up goals for Kevin Nolan before being sent off as 10-man West Ham beat Swansea 2-0 Saturday to provisionally move out of the Premier League relegation zone.

Carroll headed down to Nolan in the 26th for his teammate to fire in a left-footed half volley at Upton Park.

The West Ham captain made it 2-0 in the 45th after Carroll headed in from the side and Nolan scored with a close-range header of his own.

Carroll was dismissed with a straight red card 14 minutes after the interval when his flailing arm caught Swansea defender Chico Flores on the head. Flores rolled over on the ground several times for what appeared to be a light blow at most.

West Ham has four points in its last two league matches after drawing at Chelsea 0-0 on Wednesday.
